How to access your Windows VPS from an Android phone?

Phones are getting smarter and smarter every day. One of the main focuses of today’s technology is convenience. Everything can be connected to everything and controlled in one smooth motion. And with even more personalization it is no surprise, that many people choose to use their own Windows server VPS.

Easy access anywhere

Virtual private server attracts users by offering availability to reach your work anywhere and anytime. With a VPS you can not only bring your work with you anywhere you go when need be, but also access personal file storage. You won’t be weighed down by a beast of a machine that is needed to run your server. VPS works on a premise that you are allocated a virtual partition of one powerful server, which is fully under your command. What even better, you don’t need to share any resources with other users as all separate servers, even though on the same machine, do not influence or interact with each other. So even if all you have is an old laptop or even a mobile phone, you can access the files in your server and even manage them remotely.

In the server tab fill out the IP address. The port should be left as default 3389. Your username is the Administrator credentials for your Windows VPS or dedicated server root. Password can be found in the email you got after signing up.

That is all, you’re set up. At the main screen of the X2 client, there will be your server listed, just waiting for you to tap it and connect.
