Remote Console via VNC

Introduction

Accessing the video output of a server can be very useful sometimes. For example, issues with the configuration that prevent the machine from booting can be easily fixed that way. Additionally, it's possible to install a custom operating system.

We offer VNC access for every CloudServer.

You can find the credentials to use the VNC server in our ServerManager by selecting the option "VNC Console".
