We’ve added two more pre-installed images to our library: Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS Desktop and Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS Server. As with the other pre-install images, you need only to create a server and the Open Hosting platform will implicitly create a drive with the OS already installed.
The desktop installation takes a few minutes, because it requires a drive of at least 4GBs for installation. This is a kitchen sink build, which includes the desktop and office and most every package.
The server Installation, on the other hand, takes less than a minute, and no more than 1GB is required for a healthy install. Like our other pre-install systems, it is a minimal build.
As with all the other pre-installed images:
- The VNC password is platform-generated and found near your server.
- When connecting by VNC, you can login by typing “root” without providing a password.
- The root user is disabled for SSH and other remote access.
- For accessing by SSH, use the toor user and enter the VNC password.
