Connect to the virtual machine with <PuTTy>

  1. Install PuTTY Link to download the application – Start PuTTY.
  1. To connect to a virtual machine, you need to generate a “private key” in advance. This can be done using the following instructions (by choosing the “file format:” option “.ppk” in step 3)
