After purchasing and launching an instance of Windows type, you can choose to login the instance for relevant management. Depending on whether your local operating system and instance are accessible by the Internet, different login methods can be adopted in different situations. For details, please refer to the table below.
|Type of Local Operating System||Linux Instance Associated to Public IP||Linux Instance Not Associated to Public IP|
|Wndows|| VNC Login
Remote Desktop Connection
|Mac OS|| VNC Login
Remote Desktop Login
Create an instance and acquire the account number and corresponding password.
VNC login is a way provided by JD Cloud for remote connection to instance for users via Web browser. In the case that a remote login client is not installed or the client remote login is not available, the user can connect to the instance through VNC login, observe the instance status, and perform basic instance management operations through the instance user. The scenarios of VNC login include at least the following:
Enter the system login interface by clicking the Ctrl+Alt+Del command in the upper left corner:
Before connecting the Windows instance using MSTSC remote desktop, user must first ensure that the instance is associated to the EIP, and such access is allowed in the security group and network ACL rules. You can create a Windows instance on the JD Cloud console and acquire the EIP: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX.
When the local system is Linux and you need to login the Window instance remotely, you need to install the corresponding remote desktop connection program, usually using the rdesktop client.
Before logging in, please check the Security Group of the instance and the Network ACL configuration of the subnet to ensure that the port 3389 of instance is open. After installing rdesktop, run the following commands to login the instance:
rdesktop -u administrator -p <Instance login password> <Instance EIP address>
Taking Remote Desktop officially provided by Microsoft, the example illustrates how to remotely log in Windows instances by local MAC OS. Please go to HockeyApp to download Remote Desktop and confirm if the current system version supports the same before download.
After addition is completed, the instance can be found via the Public IP Address in "saved Desktop", click the icon, and enter user name and password. The default user name of Windows instance is administrator. Then, click Done to connect instances.
After first connection, the instance icon intended for connection can be directly found and selected or connection again. Click Connect in the window setting icon, enter login information and connect.
