Alternative access to KVM VPS is via VNC console, other than primary access via RDP or SSH client. VNC console can be accessed via billing client area.
From your main Billing Portal, click on Services tab and select My Services
Scroll down of the page, find your respective VPS you need to manage.
From here onward, you may perform some basic task from Billing Portal such as Boot (Start), Reboot, Shutdown, Graph (View VPS Usage), Control Panel (To access client portal).
Scroll down and click on Control Panel button. Do take note that this Control Panel is NOT referring your CMS control panel such as WHM/cPanel, Plesk, CWP, Vesta and so on.
You will be brought to Virtual Server page. Here will be the list of your VPS which you may have subscribed.
Click on Manage button on the respective VPS.
You now in SolusVM control panel page of the VPS you have selected just now.
To access your VPS via VNC, click on VNC button.
You will be presented with VNC connection information. You may use the information (ip address, VNC port and VNC password) provided here if want to use 3rd party VNC client viewer such as TigerVNC or RealVNC or other VNC client viewer. Otherwise, you may just simply use the built-in VNC client via browser's HTML5 client.
Click on HTML5 VNC Client SSL button.
Do allow pop-up from this URL if your browser has pop-up blocker enabled.
You will see your VPS interface here just like it appear when RDC or SSH to your server. Except this session is from your web browser. For Windows VPS, click on Send CtrlAltDel button on the top right-hand corner side. For Linux VPS, simply enter your username root and its password.
You need to enter the username and its password ACCURATELY. Copy & Paste function will not work in VNC session.
If you encounter some error such as these
Most likely you VPS not up running yet. Probably the VPS in state of creating (if you perform re-installation) or being rebooted (if you perform reset root/administrator password or perform reboot).
You need to wait until your VPS is up running. While waiting, you can ping your VPS ip address in order to check whether your VPS already up running or not.
