How do I connect via RDP on my Windows VPS?

Windows Firewall is active by default, so RDP access will first need to allowed in the firewall before you will be able to connect remotely.

You can connect to the VPS using VNC in your Virtualizor control panel.

After logging into the server, Click Start --> Administrative Tools --> Windows Firewall

From there, go to Inbound Rules and enable Remote Desktop.

Also make sure you have RDP allowed in the System "Remote" settings and have the user account you are connecting with added to "Remote Desktop Users":

Right-click "Start" button
Click "System"
Click "Remote" tab
Choose "Allow remote connections to this computer"
Click "Apply"

To choose or add/allow users to connect via Remote Desktop

Click "Select Users"
