Logging in Using Standard Method (Recommended)

Last updated: 2024-01-08 09:32:02


    This document describes how to log in to a Windows instance using the standard login method (WebRDP).
    This method does not vary by the local operating system and supports direct login to the Windows instance in the console.


    You must have the admin account and password for logging in to a Windows instance remotely.
    If you have set a login password, please use it for login. If you forgot it, please reset it.
    If you have chosen to generate a random password when creating an instance, please get it from Message Center.
    You have purchased a public IP for your CVM instance and opened a remote login port (3389 by default) for the WebRDP proxy IP in the security group associated with the instance.
    If you purchase a CVM instance through quick configuration, the port is opened by default.
    If you purchase a CVM instance through custom configuration, you can manually open the port as instructed in Security Group Use Cases.
    Make sure that the public network bandwidth of your instance is ≥ 5 Mbit/s; otherwise, the remote desktop may lag. To adjust the network bandwidth, please see Adjusting Network Configuration.
