Microsoft Remote Desktop Clients are available for nearly every device through their respective app store these days, best of all they are free. Google Play for Android, iTunes for iOS, and the Mac App Store for Macs, it is already included in every version of Windows. You can find direct links to those downloads in this Microsoft Technet article: Microsoft Remote Desktop Clients -


When connecting from a PC or Mac, we recommend using a Remote Desktop Shortcut, .RDP file. The shortcut is a settings file that tells your already installed Remote Desktop client how to connect to your VPS subscription.

From your CNS Client Area

  1. Click "My Products & Services"
  2. Then click the "View Details" button to access the Control Panel
  3. Next, scroll down to the "RDP Shortcut Creator"
  4. Configure your settings in the box
  5. Then use the "Download/Open RDP Shortcut" button

    Save the file to your machine or Open it when using a Public device to access your VPS


When connecting from your mobile device you will want to gather the information from your VPS details page to use with your Client. The main settings you will need from that page will be:

  • IP Address - Noted in your Product Details, may also be called host address or remote server in your client.
  • RDP Port - Noted on the RDP Shortcut Creator.
  • Console - If you're connecting to a VPS running Windows Server 2003 be sure to Enable the Console option in your Client so that you will see the same session as when connecting from your PC.
