English

In order to start using your new VPS you will first need access to the VPS via its console. Also when rebooting your VPS it can be handy to keep an eye on things via this console. You can reach the console of your VPS by logging in with ssh on the Soleus console server:
ssh username@console.soleus.nu
For this login you'll need the ssh key which you provided earlier to Soleus for access. After logging in you will enter the xen-shell. Use the command help to get an overview of the commands available. The command console will immediately connect you to the console of your VPS. You can terminate that connection at any moment with the escape sequence control+]. And you can leave the xen-shell with the exit command.
