Work from Home - Quick Guide

 *Updated* 20/03/2020 please read


The school now recommends you use Freedom2roam to connect from home from now on. This works with Windows, iMacs & Linux. The older method for remote access is still active & can be found at the bottom of this page but this will soon be mothballed & taken out of service.

To remotely connect using Freedom2roam open the following link, input your LGFL credentials and then connect to the school's network with your school username & password.

Please contact the school's IT Manager via email if you're having issues connecting.



Old Method *Will be taken out of service Autumn 2020*

Below are the steps you will need to follow in order to gain remote access from home.

 PC users:

Step 1: Download & run the work from home login program, found here

Step 2:  You’ll now be prompted to authenticate yourself with the LFGL. Note that it says RDP Gateway Credentials at this stage as highlighted in the below illustration. Here you must use your LGFL USO username with a 'RDP\' prefix - eg: RDP\ssmith789. You will need to request this from the IT Support department if you do not already have it.

*Note that if you don’t want to retype these details every time you work from home just click the ‘Remember my credentials box’. 

Step 3: You now need to input your school credentials to authenticate with the school network & once again you will need prefix which in this instance is 'WHSNET\', an illustration is below. Note that this second log in screen says ‘enter your credentials’.
