How to Connect to Your VPS From Your Windows 10 PC

Setup & Configuration

In this tutorial, we will show you how to connect to your VPS using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) from Windows 10.

Windows Remote Desktop Protocol has been integrated into all Windows versions from XP on, so you don’t need to
install any additional programs.

You will receive an email after completing the payment and activating your FXVM VPS/Server. You need to take note of the following:

  • Your FXVM VPS/Server IP address (IP: port),
  • Username and Password.

On your Windows 10 system, let’s start by clicking on the Start menu:

Windows 10 RDP 01

In the Start menu please start typing Remote Desktop Connection and
press [Enter]:

Windows 10 RDP 02

You should be presented with Remote Desktop Connection.
please click on Show Options:

Clipboard (so you can Copy/Paste between your local machine and VPS):

If you click on the More, you can also share your local
disk so you will have ability to copy files to/from your VPS:

Now let’s go back to General tab.

password next time.

Enter your VPS IP address (IP:port) and username in the fields below you received in your email then
click Connect:
