Opening and Saving Files in LUApps

Using the LUApps Citrix environment to open and save files is a bit more complex than on one's own computer, because it presents a number of additional options.  The image below points out various areas that users may see when they use a program delivered via LUApps.  Be sure to take a little extra time when saving your files to make sure you remember where they went.

Virtual Software: LUapps

Virtual software systems, also known as 'application virtualization' technologies, allow users to run numerous programs that aren’t installed on their devices by installing a single piece of client software (Citrix Receiver / Workspace), and using it to connect to a central server on which the programs actually run.  This enables Android, iOS or Mac users to easily access software that is only written for Windows, for example. Lehigh now uses Citrix for this, and has a customized implementation called 'LUapps'.

Transitioning to Secure Static Websites

For the past several years, websites everywhere have been gradually transitioning to the use of secure (encrypted) connections by default for all web traffic. This is referred to as HTTPS-Only. This federal government document describes the HTTPS-only standard and why it is important. Most of Lehigh’s websites have already been changed to comply with the new standard.

Connect to Lehigh Network Storage from Linux

Linux-based operating systems vary widely in their implementation of network file sharing protocols.  In order to make connections from your Linux-based system to Lehigh's Windows-based file servers, it's often best to simply pull up a terminal window and enter the appropriate command.  To do this at Lehigh requires that you make sure to set a few options correctly in that command.
