Last Updated: Feb 06, 2018


This article will describe how to connect to a Windows-based simple Application Server by using the Windows remote desktop connection.

Operation steps

Choose Start > Run, or press WIN+R, and then enter mstsc, and press the Return key to open the Remote Desktop Connection window.

Enter the Server IP address and user name (administrator by default) respectively in the Computer Name and User Name fields on the Remote Desktop Connection window, and then click Connect.

Enter the correct password as prompted, and click OK. If you forgot the password or you have never set the password, refer to Reset server password.

When you connect to the server for the first time, the system may prompt a certificate error. Select Do not ask… and click Yes(Y) to trust the certificate.

You will be able to see the Windows remote desktop after the connection has been established successfully.
