Accessing your Windows VPS from your mobile device can be incredibly useful for managing SM Tasker and other tasks.

How to check your VPS via Android phone?

You can either purchase a Remote Desktop Program client to your Android device or get a free app via Google Play Store.  From there you will see several apps such as Microsoft Remote Desktop App which is the app that we will use for this guide.

3. Next, you can start creating your connection by tapping the ‘ + ‘ symbol at the upper right corner of the screen and selecting ‘Add PC’.

➡ PC Name – you need to input your VPS IP here.

➡ User name – you have the option to enter the username each time you connect or you can tap on the drop-down arrow and tick the ‘Add user account’ option which is highly recommended so you don’t need to enter the username whenever you want to connect to your VPS.

➡ Upon selecting ‘Add user account’, you will be prompted to enter the username and password of your VPS.  Add the required credentials then tap ‘Save’.

💡For most VPS, the default username is ‘Administrator’ unless you’ve changed it.

5. Click ‘Save’ and it will route you back to the PCs selection area.

6. now, you are done with creating your connection. To connect to your VPS, just tap on the connection you’ve created and you’ll see the screen where it shows initiating the remote connection.

7. When the connection to your VPS is successfully established, you may now check on SM Tasker.  You can either drag the mouse pointer or use you can opt to use touch mode which is more convenient.
