Logging into Linux Instance via VNC

Last updated: 2020-02-11 10:02:05



VNC login offered by Tencent allows users to remotely connect to a CVM via a web browser. If a client does not have remote login installed, it cannot be used or logged into via any other means, users can connect to a CVM using VNC login to observe the CVM’s status and do basic CVM management operations using the CVM account.

Applicable OS

Windows, Linux, or macOS.

  • Mainstream browsers must be used when using VNC login on a CVM, such as Chrome, Firefox, and IE 10 or above.
  • A VNC login is a dedicated terminal, meaning only one user can use a VNC login at a time.
