Steps to access to RDP Forex VPS via Remote Desktop:
It’s easy to connect to a Forex VPS from Windows 7,8 or 10, using Microsoft’s built-in Remote Desktop Connection program, also called RDC.
Read on for a walkthrough of basic configuration to connect to your remote Windows server.

How to Connect Forex VPS

Open the Start menu and search for remote desktop. You should see Remote Desktop Connection. Open it.

In the Computer field, enter your Forex Virtual Private Server’s public IP address with port number 4001

RDC will prompt you for the remote system’s username and password (if the server is offline or inaccessible, you will receive an error message).

Select Remember my credentials for faster sign-ins in the future.

RDC may warn you about a security certificate, because the remote server uses a self-generated SSL certificate. This is OK.

That’s it! After clicking OK, RDC will connect to your Forex VPS, and display the remote desktop.
You can now interact with the remote desktop exactly like a local Windows PC.

Note :
RDC = Remote Desktop Connection software application used to connecting remote desktop.
RDP = Remote Desktop Protocol is the protocol used by RDC to make the connection to remote desktop.
