Steps to Connect to Windows VPS with RDP (Windows 7)
Connecting to a remote Windows server or Windows VPS from your Windows 7 PC is easy with Microsoft’s own Remote Desktop Connection(RDC) program. It is included with most versions of Windows.

How to Connect

To launch RDC, open the Start menu of your computer and search for Remote Desktop Connection
(If you can’t find it, run Start > Run > mstsc.exe). Enter your VPS or remote Windows Server details as follows.
In the Computer field, enter your server’s public IP address. IPADDRESS:PORT referring to the IP Address & Port that we provided and the information that we've sent through your email.

Click Connect.

You may see a message like the following. This happens because the security certificate used by your VPS is self-generated and self-signed. It’s OK to connect because you know it’s your own server, so feel free to select Don’t ask me again.

Click Connect.

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).

Click OK.

We're done ! You should now be connected to your server’s desktop.
