Getting started after deploying Guacamole

A notification will be sent to the e-mail specified during registration that the server is ready for work after paying for the order. It will contain the IP address of the VPS, as well as the login and password for the connection. Clients of our company manage the hardware in the server`s and API control panel — Invapi.

Here is the data for authorization:

  • Link to access the Guacamole dashboard with a web interface: in the webpanel tag;
  • Login: root
  • Password in a letter to your e-mail upon receipt of the server.


Authorization consists of two steps. First you need to follow the link from the webpanel tag, enter the credentials: Username - root, Password - from the letter sent to your e-mail and click on the Login button:

A new window will open for you to enter your credentials. Here you will need to enter your login details: Username - user, Password - from the letter sent to your email, and click on the Ok button:
