Logging In to Windows HUAWEI CLOUD ECSs Using MSTSC

Logging In to Windows HUAWEI CLOUD ECSs Using MSTSC

If a Windows ECS uses password-based authentication, you can use MSTSC (remote login tool) to log in to the ECS from a local server.


Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is disabled on Windows ECSs by default. Before using MSTSC to log in to a Windows ECS, log in to it using VNC and enable RDP.


  • The password for logging in to an ECS has been obtained.
  • You have bound a public EIP to the ECS. If you do not bind a public EIP to the ECS, bind one by following the instructions provided in Binding a HUAWEI CLOUD EIP to a HUAWEI CLOUD ECS.
  • You have configured the inbound rules of the security group to allow your local computer to access the ECS RDP port. For details, see Creating a Security Group.
  • The network connection between the login tool (PuTTY) and the target ECS is normal.


  1. Check whether RDP of Windows ECSs is enabled. The following operations use Microsoft Windows 7 Professional as an example.

    1. Log in to an ECS using VNC.

      For more details, see Logging In to Windows HUAWEI CLOUD ECSs Using VNC.

    2. Click Start in the task bar and choose Control Panel > System and Security > System > Remote settings.

      The System Properties dialog box is displayed.

    3. Click the Remote tab. In the Remote Desktop pane, select Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure).

    4. Click OK.

  2. On your local computer, use MSTSC to log in to the Windows ECS.

    1. Click Start.
    2. In the Search programs and files box, enter MSTSC.
    3. Log in to the ECS as prompted.

      To ensure system security, change the login password after you log in to the ECS for the first time.

  3. Initialize the data disk for the HUAWEI CLOUD ECS.

    If a data disk has been added to the HUAWEI CLOUD ECS, you must initialize the data disk before using it. For details, see section Initializing the Data Disk (in the Windows OS).
