Connecting to containers and VMs
triton-docker exec, and Microsoft Remote Desktop are all supported connection methods to "log in" to instances in Triton.
SSH is the primary means of connecting and authenticating for command line access to all container types with the exception of Docker and Windows instances.
The propagation of SSH keys is handled differently depending on container type. The following table provides an overview of the differences.
- All access should be done as the
rootuser unless otherwise noted.
- Newer Ubuntu distributions use the
ubuntuuser for remote access.
- Windows based distributions use the
administratoraccount and the normal windows login process; Windows containers do not use SSH keys.
