How to get to the OCI instance console through a browser and RDP/SSH?
Posted by Pomoc Oktawave on 22.09.2014 22:48

To each OCI instance you can get access in two methods, typical for virtual machines - via a web browser and RDP/SSH. To do this, go into your OCS (Oktawave Cloud Instance) and select one of the instances.

Please note that the OCI instance that you want to access is enabled.

Then go to the panel of the selected instance by clicking its name.

In the panel, click the blue plus sign at the Remote Console link. Select the period for which it is to be created, and click Create.

NOTE! Remember that after you have finished using the console, click CLOSE CONNECTION (this will prevent possible difficulties restarting the console).

After a while the console is created. You can now connect to it through the web client (click link to open the web client).

In the case of the web client, after a while a new browser window will open, where you get access to the selected instance.

If the instance is running Linux, then the connection (in addition to the remote console) can be run using the SSH protocol, for Windows RDP protocol. To make such connection, you will need the access data to the machine shown in the Information section. Click on Show in the Acces data section, then you will see the data needed to login, such as login (or root for Linux) and administrator for the Windows OS. Furthermore, password is shown, which should be changed after the first login to the machine.
