Using the VNC console
When running KVM or BHYVE based compute instances you can access the VNC console

Getting access to the console

To gain access to the console, you must have the Triton CLI tools installed. Configure the environmental variables. As an example:
$ export SDC_ACCOUNT="<your username>";
$ export SDC_KEY_ID="<your SSH key ID (XX:XX:XX:XX...)";
$ export SDC_URL="https://us-central-1.api.mnx.io";
Login to the portal and these are generated for you at https://portal.mnx.io/faq/triton-cli/.
Next, use the triton CLI to establish a VNC proxy session
Using triton-cli to establish a VNC session
$ triton inst ls
SHORTID NAME IMG STATE FLAGS AGE
dec9179d mnx-test-vnc [email protected] running K 19w
1928324a mnx-webserve fre[email protected] running K 18w
$ triton inst vnc dec9179d
Listening on vnc://127.0.0.1:60823
Now, use your VNC program to connect to the listening address and you will have access to the console.
