Vyatta Network OS Documentation

Learn how to install, configure and operate the Vyatta NOS, which helps drive our virtual networking & physical platforms portfolio.

Accessing the instance remotely

Azure does not provide serial console access to VMs, and you can access your Vyatta NOS VM only by using SSH.

You must have specified an admin username while creating the Vyatta NOS VM, which you can use as the user in the SSH command. For the host name, you can use either the public IP address or the DNS name assigned to the public IP address.

$ ssh azureuser@vrouter1.westus.cloudapp.azure.com

If you used the CloudTAP template, the router instances are behind a load balancer with port forwarding configured to each instance. You have to provide a port argument for the SSH command to be able to access an instance.

$ ssh -p 2200 azureuser@cloudtap1.westus.cloudapp.azure.com
