After activation of a Windows VPS server, it takes 15 to 40 minutes to load the Operating System for the first time. Then you can connect to the VPS server with Windows Remote Desktop Connection. On Apple devices, including iPads and iPhones, you can install the Microsoft Remote Desktop app from the App Store. On Linux, you can use Remmina Remote Desktop Client or similar software. On Android, you can use Microsoft’s Remote Desktop client.
Please follow these steps to connect to your Windows VPS with RDP (this guide is for Windows users, however, other operating systems or devices work similarly.)
1. Check your email inbox and look for an email from RouterHosting containing the login details for logging into your server:
2. Now open the Remote Desktop Connection software:
3. Enter the IP address (a four-part address number similar to 18.104.22.168) which you have received in the email. (Please make sure you have waited for 20 to 40 minutes before your attempt to connect to the server.)
4. Click ‘Connect‘ and a Window like below will pop up. Here, enter your username and password (which you have received in the email) and press Ok.
Your server can be on and online 24/7. If you are running a program on it, then make sure you do not log off, just disconnect the remote connection.
