Connect using Rdesktop


On your Linux computer, you will need a Remote Desktop Application that allows you to access MacinCloud. We highly recommend a free Application called "Rdesktop." Please download it by clicking HERE before executing the following steps to connect:


1. Run the "Rdesktop" Application on your Linux computer.


2. Use the following information to connect:


Server (Host): [Your Server Name].MacinCloud.com 

This will depend on your account. You will receive your server name after your purchase. If your server name is "A101," then your hostname is "A101.macincloud.com".


Port number: 6000

If there is no specific setting for port number, please use the format: "A101.macincloud.com:6000"


3. Now you can adjust the display settings optimize your connection display quality. We recommend you to use a lower resolution and color depth first to ensure faster performance.


4. After connecting to the server, type in your assigned username and password to connect. To log off, please make sure to use the "Apple icon > Log Out..." on the remote server.
