Follow the instructions below to login to the GENI Desktop

Go to the GENI Desktop Web Page

Open a browser (Preferably Firefox or google chrome) Go to  https://genidesktop.netlab.uky.edu and follow the arrows to walk though the login process.


Authorize the GENI Desktop to act on your behalf

Technically you don't "login" to the GENI Desktop. Instead, you authorize the GENI Desktop to perform operations your behalf (like creating slices, reserving nodes, etc.). This is the GENI-approved way for tools like the GENI Desktop to act on your behalf. To authorize the GENI Desktop, you first must specify where you obtained your GENI account. For most people, this will be the GENI Portal identified by the GENI icon on the right.


Select your home university or organization

Type in or Select from the Drop Down the name of the University, College or Organization you belong to (You may be prompted to authenticate with your University, College or Organization )


Give the GENI Desktop permission to interact with your slice on your behalf


Please wait after this while your Authorization is being Validated by the GENI Clearing House.
