How to RDP to AWS Instance

If you have deployed one of our AWS marketplace images, to RDP to the newly created instance, you’ll first need to retrieve the username and password.


To do this, navigate to Instances within the AWS console and select the newly created instance.  From the menu options select “Connect / RDP Client / Get Password


Get AWS Windows EC2 RDP Password


This will bring up a window asking for the key pair. You can use an existing key pair if you’ve done this previously or create a new key pair. Save it locally to use in the future.


Once you’ve selected the key pairs, select Decrypt Password



The next screen you will see the username and password to use when you RDP to your instance.
