It’s possible to setup a VPS with remote desktop access from your windows PC. We can do this even using a free VPS, which will demonstrate here in our video tutorial using Oracle’s free tier VPS. First we setup a VPS running ubuntu, install gnome desktop and Xrdp for remote desktop. Then we can connect our home windows PC to our server and use the remote desktop!

Here below are all the commands we used in ubuntu during the video:
