- Run Putty, enter the VM address in the “Host” field and click “Open” to connect.
- In the opened console you will need to enter a username and password that were specified when the VM has been creating.
- To use a proxy, you should configure login and password for the connection (or use the standard ones that were generated while creating a VM), which can be found by running the following command:
> cat /etc/tinyproxy/credentials
