There are several ways you can access the edgeLinux OS terminal
In AntMan (vers. 0.9.1)
Connect a keyboard and monitor
IPMI: see the setup page
Click the '>_Console' link in the main menu.
Prior to antMan 0.10.0 You are prompted to enter your root username.
Now you have access to the EdgeLinux command line.
You can SSH to the edgeLinux OS in the following ways
Using the private IP address of the antsle
replace 'myantsle' with the name of your antsle
With an .antsle.us subdomain
There are several ways you can SSH to your antlets
From the edgeLinux terminal
Direct to the antlet using a bridged NIC
Just login to Antsle's command line as shown above, then open a new SSH session into your antlet. e.g. antlet has IP address 10.1.1.12
The default username for all of our Linux templates is 'root', with the exception of the Ubuntu KVM template which has a default username 'ubuntu'. See the Templates/Passwords page.
In this example we not required to include the username 'root' because, if omitted, SSH will use the name of the currently logged in user. The terminal prompt shows that 'root' is currently logged in.
If you have configured a bridged virtual NIC on an antlet you can SSH directly to the IP address of the bridged interface.
In case you are not familiar with
ssh, it's very easy to use with many excellent tutorials out there.
Or try WSL, aka: Bash on Ubuntu on Windows. This seems to work well but will not resolve .local domain names.
Ubuntu 16.04 KVM template:
Remember the Ubuntu KVM template has a default username: 'ubuntu'.
After having logged in via ssh, install all the software you want. Use package managers such as apt-get in debian or Ubuntu, yum in CentOS or Fedora, or pkg in FreeBSD to install your software. To get started, you might try this guide or this one.
