Logging In to Linux Instances (VNC)

Last updated: 2022-05-11 16:53:50


    VNC login provided by Tencent Cloud allows users to remotely log in to CVM via a web browser. If a client does not have remote login installed or it cannot be used, user can log in to the CVM using VNC login to check the CVM status and perform basic management operations using the CVM account.

    Use Limits

    • VNC login currently does not support copy and paste, Chinese input method, and file upload or download.
    • When you use VNC to log in to CVM, mainstream browsers must be used, such as Chrome, Firefox, IE 10 and above.
    • VNC login is a dedicated terminal, meaning only one user can use VNC login at a time.


    You already have the admin account and password to log in to the instance.

    • If you have chosen to generate a random password when creating an instance, please get it from Message Center.
    • If you have set a login password, please use it for login. If you forgot it, please reset it.
