FAQ / Connecting to remote desktop

Connecting to remote desktop


Connecting to a remote desktop is performed using the RDP client. Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client is installed in all Windows OS since Windows XP. Also there are versions of remote desktop clients for Mac and Android smartphones. For Linux you can use rdesktop, FreeRDP or Remmina, for iPhone - we recommend the staff alternative RDP or iTap RDP To launch the RDP client under Windows will run on your computer:

1. To connect via RDP, use the key combination Win+R in the window type the command mstsc.exe the /console /admin and click OK



Note on the settings /console /admin - they are connecting to the "console" of the server, instead of creating a new session. Thus, you will always connect to your previously running session, instead of creating a new that will allow to avoid the problem of "dual launch" program and parallel sessions.


2. Or start -> Programs -> accessories -> Connect to remote desktop




In the opened window you must specify the IP address of the server to which you want to connect. IP address and all data for the job (specified in the letter with access data), after entering the address, click "Connect" after a few seconds a window will appear for entering the password. Carefully enter your username (default for all new servers are "Administrator" and the password and tick "Remember my credentials":



Please note, the password must be entered manually "copy-paste" does not work. If You have entered the correct username and password it will connect to a remote desktop of Your Windows VDS. When you first connect You will see information about untrusted security certificate. This is because the server encrypts the transmitted data SSL certificate that was automatically generated by the server. It does not mean a security problem, it's just a notification that the encryption is done using a certificate that was issued by the unauthorized center.



Here You must mark "do not show the query about connections to this computer" and click "Yes".
