Having trouble connecting to ubuntu vps using microsoft remote desktop.

September 22, 2014 1.2k views

I had been using microsoft rd successfully for months but it has stopped working. I'm certain I'm inputting the correct credentials and ip address but i still fail to connect to the vps. Im not experiencing a back or blank screen but rather i cannot connect at all. Im awful at dealing with technical issues so any help would be appreciated.

  • Is the RDP server running on your droplet? Try logging in using the remote console or SSH and running the following commands (replace 3389 with the RDP port -- leave it as is if you're not sure what it is):

    sudo ps wwaux | grep -i rdp
    sudo netstat -plutn | 3389

    What do they output?

  • Remote desktop connection not' work...plz help IP plz ON...VPS server
