How do I connect to my Windows server via RDP?

In this article, we will show you how to connect to a Windows server via RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).

NOTE: We use PORT: 45200 for safety purposes for our servers.

I) Run the Remote Desktop Connection Client

Step 1
Firstly, open the Remote Desktop Connection Client by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Remote Desktop Connection.

Step 2
Secondly, enter the IP address of the server in the Computer field and click Connect.

Step 3 (Optional) 
To set up file transfer or enable your clipboard for copy/paste, click Options.

Step 4
After that, click the Local Resources tab, select the Clipboard option, click More, and then click Drives.

Step 5
Lastly, click on the General tab to save your session, and then remember to click Save As.

II) Log in to Your Server

You will see the Windows login screen once you’ve linked. For the first time, type in the Computer NameAdministrator and its password (this is the emailed password when your server was built).

Congratulations you have connected and logging in successfully to your new and latest server
