I cannot connect to the remote desktop. What's wrong?

Our VPS's do not come with remote desktop capabilities by default. If you are trying to connect to your VPS with Microsoft's Remote Desktop software, it's not going to work since Linux does not support it.

If you are looking to have a remote desktop environment, you'll have to install a window manager such as Gnome, XFCE, KDE, etc. Then you can either install a VNC server or use NoMachine to connect to your VPS via remote desktop.
