You should be able to access programs and your files using the Deskview option.

Wabash maintains a proxy server that provides secure access to many library resources while off campus. See this library web page for more information.

Off-Campus Access to Datatel

It is possible to connect to Datatel from off campus, but for security purposes you must install additional software on your home computer.  You should be able to access that program and your files using the Deskview option ( You will need to use Internet Explorer (PC), as Deskview will not work in Firefox (unless you have the IE tab installed). Safari on Macs will work.
