V-Colo Control Panel: Server Console Access

Please note that the "demo" user ID does not work with the console server.

To access your server's console, you must connect to our console server. Options for doing so include
  1. https://config.panix.com/consoles5/
  2. ssh://consoles5.panix.com

Note that option 2 will only work if your browser knows about ssh. If it doesn't, you'll have to start ssh by hand.

Once connected, log in using the same login and password you use to access https://config.panix.com . You'll see a menu that looks like this:
Please enter one of the following to connect to, or reboot a system:

    Enter this                    To do this
    --------------------------    ----------------------------
    vc293                         Connect to the console of vc293
    reboot vc293                  Forcibly reboot vc293

Or enter:



If you have multiple V-Colos, they'll all show up in the menu.

If you choose to reboot a server, you'll be given the option of bringing it up in single-user mode.

While you can use the console to reboot your server, you can also reboot it (and set single-user mode if you like) using the Status Page of the Web Control Panel.
