Hi there,

Do you get any errors when you try to connect?

The tutorials that you’ve shared look good, what you could add is a service like xrdp to enable remote desktop protocol on your server and be able to connect remotely and use the graphical interface.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

Let me know how it goes!

Best,

Bobby
