You will be able to access your VPS from your MAC, by using your VPS details and a small application called Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac, please follow the steps below:
In order to get started with Microsoft Remote Desktop, you must begin by downloading it from the Mac App Store.
Open Finder > Applications > App Store.
Please try using the search bar to find Microsoft Remote Desktop.
Select Get > Install App, After installing the app, please click on the Microsoft Remote Desktop icon in your Applications folder.
Launch the app by finding it in your Applications folder.
If you think you’ll be frequently using this remote desktop connection, you can set it in your dock.
Right-click (control + click) on the icon, mouse over “Options,” and click “Keep in Dock.”
