Posted by Mark Cross, Last modified by Mark Cross on 31 July 2017 01:01 PM

Connecting to RemoteApps on Macintosh


On Macintosh, Microsoft Remote Desktop must already be installed in order to connect to RemoteApps. See our help article for installing this prerequisite if it isn’t already installed.


RemoteApps are located within a folder on Datastor.


  1. With no windows open or focused, the toolbar displays Finder in the top-left. Click Go, then Connect to Server…




  1. In the Server Address field, type cifs://datastor, then click Connect.




  1. Within the list of folders, you will see RemoteApps. Click on it, and then click OK.




  1. Once you are connected, a Finder window with the contents of RemoteApps will appear.
