accesing interserver vps from Ubuntu


New Member
Hi, I am having problems connecting to my interserver VPS. (runnng windows on the vps) from my Linux home computer. I have remmina installed and am using RDP. I enter the IP address, and my Administrator username and password and click connect. It shows the message "Connecting" but then returns to the connection window.

I am not sure of what else I need to do.

When I use my windows computer I can connect using windows own RDP, But I dont want to use that computer.

Do I need a program running under wine or something in order to be able to connect to and use the windows VPS?

make sure ip port 3389 can be connect to from your system.

If you run linux on your home system there is an rdesktop program to connect. An alternative is vnc.
