Accessing oXygen

The oXygen XML editor is available to UNF users via the Virtual Lab in MyWings, which uses Citrix remote-access software to let you access, via your local machine, software that actually runs on a UNF server.

You can access the Virtual Lab directly through MyWings > Student Tools* > Virtual Lab. However, if you take this route, by default the now-deprecated client tool Citrix Receiver will launch. Furthermore, the version that launches is the “light” version runs in the browser, not on your machine itself, and as a result it can sometimes be difficult or impossible to access your local file system. *For faculty/staff, this is [Employee Resources > Employee Tools].

Therefore, this is the recommended approach:

  1. Download the proper version (for PC or Mac) of Citrix Workspace (the current application) from the Citrix website: https://www.citrix.com/downloads/workspace-app/
  2. Double click on the downloaded file to run the installer, and say yes to any questions it asks you.
  3. Once it is installed, click on the Citrix Workspace icon in the task bar of your computer (if you’re using Windows) or launch Citrix Workspace from the application menu.
  4. When it prompts you to add an account, enter this server address: vlab.unf.edu
  5. It will then prompt you for your network credentials (N# and password)
  6. The first time you enter the Citrix Workspace app, you will need to click on the “+” sign to expand the list of applications, and then choose oXygen.

To open a file saved on your local machine, File > Open, and then navigate to the file. Note that your computer will be listed under “Local Disk.” You probably will need to look under “Users” to find the folders that correspond to your user account on that machine.

Please realize that when you are browsing for a file under File > Open, the high-level folders “This PC,” “Desktop,” “Documents,” etc. (which you will see whether you are on a PC or a Mac), refer to the virtual machine on which the software is running, not to your local computer. Make sure you are always saving files to the file structure of own user account under “Local Disk” (which is located on your machine itself)– not to those remote locations.
