Hello, I’ve completed the initial server setup following this guide https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-14-04

Would any of you be kind enough to link to a tutorial on what the next step is to be able to access a Remote Desktop from my Mac at home. Thanks in advance.

Hello, @carlarien

On macOS, you can use the built-in Screen Sharing program, or can use a cross-platform app like RealVNC.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

In order to access remote desktop from your MAC computer, you need to use tools like logmein, R-HUB remote support servers, gotomypc etc.
