Download Speeds in Microsoft Azure Servers

I created a VM through the Azure Account .

Then Created a Windows server 2012 Datacenter Virtual Machine .

Connected to the Server Via the Remote Desktop ( RDP file ) which can be downloaded by clicking on the connect icon which is in the bottom of the page in the azure management portal



RDP file will be downloaded open it appropriately.


Login using the credentials that you gave while creating the VM.


The server Responds with the certificate and stuff . Just click Yes .
