How to connect to Linux VPS (Newbie here)
#1
Hi,

I am complete newbie when it comes to Linux. I have a Linux server with following config:

RAM: 1GB
HDD: 25 GB
Architecture: 64 Bits

What I want? 

I simply want to connect to this server from my PC which have Windows 7(Professional) using RDP or VNC.

any help will be highly appreciated. 

Thank You

Have you installed and configured VNC Server on your Ubuntu? Here are several tutorials you can use: Tutorial on DigitalOcean, Tutorial on HowToForge, Ubuntu Official Documentation.

If you are new to Linux, I bet you are not new to Google Search.

the easiest solution for you will be 'xrdp' if you want to use rdp on your windows pc.

What do you mean 'unable to connect'?
What exactly did you do and what error do you get?
Are you trying that using VPS or VM? does it come with dedicated IP?

Watch this tutorial and follow it step by step.

It is OpenVZ57
and yes it did gave me an IP address(don't know if it is "dedicated" or not)

Note: I am using interserver.net's VPS

You'll need to specify what error you're getting and when. Also paste here VNC config file content from server.

Private IPs:
Class A: 10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
Class B: 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
Class C: 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255


Local Host: 127.0.0.1 (the whole 127-based IPs will be routed as local host [your own computer] ).

APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing, a service on your computer to give itself a private IP when there are no DHCP server found): 169.254.0.1 - 169.254.255.

IPs which are not in use are 0-based (0.x.x.x), 224-based (224.x.x.x) to 255-based.

Other than those IPs are public IP and usually usable. See if you get a colon ( : ) after your IP or not. If you didn't get it, then that is a dedicated public IP. If you get a colon along with your IP (eg. 1.2.3.4:9999), then you get a shared public IP.

64.20.*.* is my IP, I guess, it is Dedicated, right?

Interserver does not sell NAT VPSs so therefore all services come with dedicated IP addresses (excluded shared hosting but it might actually have a dedicated IP addon).

So of course his IP address is dedicated.
