Go to Access section in your machine dashboard page and click on Reset Root Password. The password will be mailed to you…you can use this password to login into your machine. And default username is root .

The default username is: root <br>And the password is the one that is emailed to you. <br> <br>The password is case sensitive, so please be sure to enter it exactly as it was emailed. <br> <br>In the HTML5 console after you enter in the username “root”, when you enter in the password it will not be echoed to the terminal, so it will look like nothing is being inputted but that is just because of security. <br> <br>If you have any other questions please let us know. <br> <br>Thanks.
