To use the application server, you need the following things:
1. A reasonably fast Internet connection from your home computer.
2. A College of Engineering Windows Active Directory login account (see Q5 if you are not sure about this)
3. The AppServer client installed on your computer. This is the only thing that you will actually need to install on your computer, and it is available for free download.
For details on the installation and configuration of the AppServer client, see the following link:
