Log in to a Windows KEC instance

A Windows KEC instance supports WebVNC login and remote desktop login.

The default username of the Windows operating system is kingsoft. If you forget the password, you can reset the password in the console.

WebVNC login

  1. Log in to the KEC console.

  2. On the Instance page that appears, find the instance that you want to log in, and click Connect Instance in the Operation column. Note that the instance must be in the Running state.

  3. In the window that appears, click Ctrl+Alt+Delete under Key Operations in the upper-right corner. If the screen stays black, it means that it is hibernating. Press any key to wake it up.

  4. Enter the password and press Enter.

Remote desktop login

Before you log in to an instance by using a remote desktop connection, add an inbound rule to the security group to which the instance belongs. Set the protocol to TCP Windows Remote Login and both the start and end ports to 3389. For more information about how to configure a security group, see Configure a security group.
