Whether you wish to remote into a server for application management, updating, fixing or any other purpose, chances are you’ll be using one generalised way. Indeed, the question of how to RDP into a server is often asked because of RDP. The protocol has been available by default on most Windows devices for over 20 years by now.

Pre-requisites and Necessary Information

Before we start, there is one prerequisite to establishing an RDP connection into any server or device. That is simply to make sure it has remote connections allowed. You can check this in settings and enable remote connections if need be.

Also, bear in mind it can be unsafe to remote into devices that lack valid SSL certification. If that is the case, be sure you know the server is not compromised and you trust it.

The first thing you need is the IP address of the server you want to remotely reach. The second are your login credentials: username and password.

Steps to RDP Into a Server

  • To connect from a Windows device, open the “Settings” in your “Start” menu and find “Remote Desktop and RemoteApp Connections”. This will give you access to the connection client.

  • (You can also search for it if you prefer.)

  • In the Remote Desktop Connection window, you can then enter the hostname or the IP address for the server you want to access. Validate by clicking “Connect”.

  • Next, you will be prompted to enter your login details in the login window. That done, you can click OK.

  • At this point, your remote server should display on your local screen.
