2) search for “Remote Desktop Connection”.

Note (If you can’t find it, you can start it manually with Start > Run > mstsc.exe).

3) Enter your Windows VPS details as follows:

Computer: [IP address of your RDP VPS or Windows Server.]


4) Click Connect button

You see a message like the following.


5) select “Don’t ask me again.”

6) Click Connect button

RDC will prompt for your password

Enter the following:

2) Type Password: Password is supplied by your Windows VPS provider.



3) Click Ok button

You should now be connected to your server’s desktop. Please take care to update your Administrator password right away!
