LXDE Desktop is one of the OS templates available for our VPS plans, you can choose it while setting up your VPS for the first time or change it later anytime.
You will need VNC viewer software to connect to Remote Desktop. We recommend this software:
Windows: Tightvnc, RealVNC viewer
Mac/Linux: RealVNC viewer
Recommended VPS memory size greater than 2 GB
You can change your VNC root password by opening a new terminal and typing
changevncpassword newpasswordcommand. Password length must be between 6-8 characters
Once you got your VPS running with LXDE you will be able to log in with VNC viewer by using this URL your_vps_ip:5901
The default login details will be as follows:
Password: first 8 characters of your root password
Using RealVNC viewer
If you will be choosing RealVNC, the first thing you will need to do is download it here. Once you have it paste your VPS IP along with 5901 port like this:
You will receive a warning about the VNC server being not encrypted, click Continue and proceed. On the next screen, you will be asked to enter your password, enter the first 8 characters of your root password.
That’s it! Now you know how to get LXDE Desktop up and running 😊
Make sure to replace your_vps_ip with the IP address of your server
