Guidance on usage: Linux Stream 9 Minimal

Connection to Linux Stream 9 Minimal

  1. Run the VM through Azure Portal. To know the server IP address, select the virtual machine from the list. By clicking the item “Overview” your IP is displayed in the line “Public IP Address”.
  1. You can connect to your VM in two ways.
    1. With OpenSSH

In the Windows 10 operating system (starting with version 1809 ), an OpenSSH client is available, with which you can connect to Linux servers via SSH. If Windows 10 is suitable and the OpenSSH client is installed, you can start connecting via SSH. To do this, launch a normal Windows command prompt and enter the command:

ssh user@*vm_ip*“,

where “user” is the username that was specified while creating the virtual machine and “*vm_ip*” is the VM IP address.

In the opened console it is necessary to enter a password that was specified while creating the virtual machine.

  1. With the PuTTy application 

To do this you need the PuTTy application to connect via ssh. You can download it at the following link – Download

Run Putty, enter the VM address in the “Host” field and click “Open” to connect.

In the opened console you will need to enter a username and password that were specified while the VM was being created (you’ll not see the password in the console while entering it). 

Now you can work with completely clean Linux Stream 9 Minimal.
