      I have a Tableau server running on EC2 instance followed steps from this documentation

      Tableau Server & Amazon AWS - Installation Walkthrough

       

      What additional information or what things i require to connect to that tableau server from a remote desktop?

      please somebody guide me on this!

       

      I am not able to understand that how would a remote computer connect to the tableau server running on EC2 instance?

          Hi VijayKumar,

          What exactly is your question?

          I'm assuming that you have successfully installed tableau on your EC2. Are you able to access the URL from your local browser?

          Where did you install your tableau desktop?  Is it on the same machine as the server?

           

          RDP is used is for connecting to an instance on amazon EC2. Since this is an windows setup, you need to RDP to connect to your server machine and make any configuration changes.

           

          Thanks,

          Vikram
