    This message has appeared due to the fact that you are about to enter a “secure” system for the first time

    To remove these “errors” a certificate needs to be downloaded to your system. thAt present time (4 Dec) we don’t have the certificate available so until that time comes, you will experience these screens every time you connect to the Remote

    Access portal.

Logging On

    The remote access system links directly into the school network system which means that to log on, all you need is your school username and password.

    The logon box is fairly self explanatory, but before clicking the LOGIN button change the domain to HEANOR (if it isn‟t already there by default)

    Upon successful logon you will be greeted with the main portal page, which looks something like this:
