Zoom Setup Instructions

  1. Prior to the first day of class please confirm that you can access the virtual classroom by running https://zoom.us/test.
  2. If possible, please access the meeting directly from your PC to the internet, and not through VPN or any other remote terminal software. It is strongly advisable to run your test from the exact same network location that you will be taking your virtual training with ProTech.
  3. Please make sure your popup blocker is set to allow popups to log in to the meeting.
  4. During your test session ensure that you have working audio equipment. It is preferred that you use headset with microphone to run your test and during training. Also, if possible, use two monitors; one for the instructor presentation and one for the lab.

  6. We will provide you a remote computer with the appropriate software for you to complete the lab exercises. Our instructor will be able to monitor the remote computer screen so that she or he can assist you at any time.
  7. Please confirm that you can access the remote lab computer using an up to date HTML 5 browser (Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari). Please test your connectivity as follows:
    • Go to the ProTech Remote Service website
    • Username: ptaccess_test
    • Password: Pa$$w0rd (0 = zero)
    • Once you login, you will see a list of test computers to choose from (HTML5TEST-01 through HTML5TEST-05). Select a test connection that is not in use (connections in use will be grayed out and display “Currently in use by 1 user” to the right.)
    • Once connected, verify that you can interact with the desktop. This is only a test machine and is not configured for any specific class. It is only used to verify that you can connect using this particular method. This test should be completed from the computer and location that you will be attending the training from.
    • For more detailed information, please consult the ProTech Remote Service test connection documentation
