Connect to a Server or VPS via Remote Desktop

Remote Desktop Connection is a program included with most Microsoft operating systems that allows you to make a connection to your server. This connection allows you to access your server directly from a remote location, as if you were sitting in front of the machine.  There are also a few programs for the Mac operating system as well.  Connecting to a Remote Desktop session is only available for Dedicated and Cloud solutions.  This option is NOT for shared accounts.
