You finally own a Rendsolve Node. You should have received an email with your username & password to your system. Upon going back to your dashboard you should be greeted with your system in your nodes area:
First Time Connecting to your Node:
Your node might be located thousands of miles away from you, So we have made it as easy as possible for you to connect to your OS.
After launching your Node and it being displayed on the Dashboard, allow 10-20 sec configuration time, After that your read to access your Node.
Upon clicking SSH a new window will open up asking for your username and password these can be found in the welcome email. The password is the one you entered on the launch window.
We recommend changing your password with the following command in terminal:

Windows & Tesla P100 Systems return a Black Screen. NVIDIA do not allow to change the mode to WDDM unfortunately so RDP is the only protocol available.
If for any reason VNC isn't working, We have a RDP portal as a back up available @ modules.rendsolve.com/rdp
We highly recommend using Parsec as your RDP Client for Windows. Parsec is installed on your Windows Rendsolve Node, Simply download the client on your system and sign in (It's Free) for a much better, lower latency experience.
*** A note on Parsec. Parsec can only be started via VNC.
