Intranet home access

You can now access the intranet by going to https://home.garlandisd.net while working at home without the need to access VDI or VPN. All you will need is to be logged into Outlook webmail/Office 365. 

Some access exceptions

Accessing the intranet from home gives you access to all the documents and pages of the intranet. However, it does not provide access to other applications or servers that are only accessible from within the district network, such as Oracle. In this case, you will see the “This site cannot be reached” error because it is not accessible via the intranet.
