  1. Authentication

The first step in authentication is to check the server preparations. Depending on different operating systems, different preparation steps are required.

  • Authentication type:
    • for Windows OS users - password (adding a server using a password from the VM)
    • for Linux OS users – password/SSH key. When choosing authentication by SSH key, the user must also enter the Private key, which he previously generated through the terminal.

You can also switch the server user. The following options are available to the user:

  • Sudo with password. You need to enter the username of the target user, the default is root. The password is used to switch to the target server user. In most cases, it’s the password of the current user. However, depending on the sudoers configuration, it’s may also be the password of the target user.
  • Sudo without password - only the username of the target user is specified.
