1. Information to know before remote VPS

1.1. What operating system does your VPS use?

For each operating system (OS - Operation System) of the VPS, you will need to use a specific tool to remote from your computer/phone to the VPS. Specifically:

  • Windows server: Remote Desktop Connection (RDC)
  • Linux server: openSSH, putty, mobaxterm,…

The installation and usage of each tool will be instructed by Tot below.

1.2. Connect information

To connect to a VPS, you need to know the following information:

  • IP server
  • Account username and password
  • Connection port: By default, the connection port will be 22 (Linux) and 3389 (Windows). Some VPS providers may change the default port information to ensure information security. For example, in TotHost's TOT M, the port is 4433.

Tot will send this connection information to your email, so please check your email to get all the necessary data.

2.1. Remote Windows Server via RDC

Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) is a built-in tool on your computer, so you can use it directly without downloading or installing anything.

  • To open RDC, press Windows + S, type "remote," and click on "Remote Desktop Connection."
  • Enter the server information. If there is a port change, add :<port_number>

2.2. Remote accessing Linux servers with OpenSSH, Putty, or MobaXterm

2.2.1. Using openSSH

Currently, newer versions of this tool have been integrated into PowerShell in Windows. If you use Terminal, you can follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings, select Apps, then choose Optional Features.
  • Check the list to see if OpenSSH is installed. If not, select Add a feature, then:
    • Find OpenSSH Client and select Install.
    • Find OpenSSH Server and select Install.
    • Finally, go back to Apps and Optional Features to ensure that OpenSSH is in the list.

To connect and access the VPS, use the following command:

ssh <username>@<IP_server>-p<port_number>
  • username is the account name used for SSH.
  • IP_server is the IP address you want to SSH into.
  • port_number is the port used for SSH (fill 4433 if you are using TotHost's TOT M). For more information on changing the port, refer to here.
