How to Remote Desktop to VPS

This tutorial will help you set a password and Remote Desktop to a Windows VPS running on the KVM platform. If you are running on the Hyper-v platform your the VNC option will not be available and the password was already set and emailed directly to you. Please refer to this tutorial to see how to launch remote desktop and connect.

Step 1. Setting Password over VNC.

HOW TO LOGIN:
1. login to my.interserver.net
2. click on “VPS” menu at the top
3. click on the wrench icon next to the vps you just ordered.
4. Click on VNC link on the left hand side menu.  ( If you do not see a vnc link you did not oder KVM/Windows VVPS).

5. “Click to connect to desktop with HTML5 VNC” button.

To set the password, send ctrl + alt + delete in VNC.

 

Enter your password twice and click on the arrow to the right.

Step 2. Enabling Remote Desktop (should already be done for you)

  1. Click Start, point to Control Panel, and then click System.
    Or
    Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. On the Remote tab, under Remote Desktop, select the Allow users to connect remotely to this computer check box, and then click OK.

STEP 3. Connect with Remote Desktop

With Remote Desktop Connection, you can connect to a computer running Windows from another computer running Windows that’s connected to the same network or to the Internet. For example, you can use all of your work computer’s programs, files, and network resources from your home computer, and it’s just like you’re sitting in front of your computer at work.

To connect to a remote computer, that computer must be turned on, it must have a network connection, Remote Desktop must be enabled, you must have network access to the remote computer (this could be through the Internet), and you must have permission to connect. For permission to connect, you must be on the list of users. Before you start a connection, it’s a good idea to look up the name of the computer you’re connecting to and to make sure Remote Desktop connections are allowed through its firewall.

If you’re user account doesn’t require a password to sign in, you’ll need to add a password before you’re allowed to start a connection with a remote computer.

      When setting a new password for the Windows VPS make sure you use a complex enough password with letters, numbers and special characters.

    Hi Michael,

    I have Hyper-V VPS Slice (Windows 1 ) but i cannot see any VNC option available under “info” tab nor anywhere on the main menu. There is only “Bandwidth/Traffic Usage” and “Resend Welcome Email” on “info” tab. Thus I am still not able to connect.

    What would be the solution? Thank you!

      Hyper-V platform is a new platform we are offering and does not use VNC. You can directly login to it using remote desktop with the ip/username/password provided to you in the welcome email.

      I checked your VPS and was able to click on CTRL ALT DELETE on the top right of the screen in the HTML5 Viewer. Try a different browser maybe a plugin is preventing the function from working.
