Service scope

Service scope
Service constraints The provision of Virtual Machines requires a browser to access the Portal.

For virtual machines running the Windows Operating System you will require a RDP/RC connectivity will be via an encrypted SSH tunnel – using a client such as Bitvise Tunnelier is recommended.

For a virtual machine that is running the Linux operating system, you use a Secure Shell (SSH) client to logon. You must install an SSH client on your computer that you want to use to log on to the virtual machine. You can of course access any VM through the ‘Console’ access within the Portal Control panel.
System requirements Software used must have appropriate licencing
