How to connect to the graphical Ubuntu desktop remotely
Now that you’ve connected to your remote server and installed a graphical desktop, it’s time to make a graphical connection.
- You can login to hosting providers’ IP-KVM access and you will be able to use the Ubuntu machine’s desktop.
- If you’re using a Supermicro server, download Supermicro IPMIView and connect directly through that application. You can download the Windows version here: https://www.supermicro.com/SwDownload/SwSelect_Free.aspx?cat=IPMI
For the Supermicro option, follow these steps to connect:
- Choose File -> New -> New system
- Enter the server’s IP address. (Don’t use http:// at the beginning)
You’re all ready to go.
