In this tutorial, you will learn how to access the Seedbox Remote Desktop on Windows and MAC OSx using X2Go client.

X2Go is simple to use and also fit low bandwidth conditions.

Download X2GO client

Download and Install X2GO Client on your local machine:
X2Go Client for Windows
X2Go Client for Mac OSx

Configure a new session

Open the X2Go client and locate the login credentials you received when you ordered a seedbox.

The Remote Seedbox Desktop login credentials contains the following information:

  • Host (Your Seedbox IP Address)
  • Login (user)
  • Password (Your Password)
  • SSH port: If you are older user or you are using older templates use port (22), if you are a new user you are probably using our new template so you need to use port (2222).
  • Session Type (XFCE)

Click on Session > New Session to create a new session.

Submit your login details (password will be required later).

Note: While configuring your new session, click on Input/Output tab and under “Display” choose a custom size of Width=1600 and Height=900, this is our favorite resolution which works very well.

Starting created session

Once you clicked on New session, log in using your Username and Password. (picture below)

If you see a “Host key verification failed.” popup box that says: The server is unknown. Do you trust the host key? Please click on Yes to trust this connection.

Tip: If you want to change your X2go password, log in via SSH console and issue:

passwd user

You will be prompted twice to enter the same password.

After this is done, remove the previous session from X2go client, and try connecting.
Mac users might need to remove their ssh_hosts entry via:

ssh-keygen -R SEEDBOX_IP:2222

Start using the remote Seedbox desktop

A successful login will result in a log session that shows the progress of the connection process.

If your login details are correct, you will be able to use the graphical user interface of your Seedbox.

We hope you enjoy it!
