Using a Windows XP instance

Aside from linux instances, you can also start and use Windows XP instances from Peak-Two. This tutorial describes how to start a Windows XP instance and use VNC to access it.

1. To start an instance go to http://10.0.3.82/horizon and log on as guest:guest



2. On the dashboard, under Images & Snapshots, click the Launch button for WinXP.





3. Supply the information for the instance. For flavor, you must select jach.custoom_1_1024. Then click Launch.



4. The new instance will be reflected in the list of instances as shown.



5. To access the instance, download and install a VNC viewer (for example tightvnc). Indicate the IP address of the instance when launching the VNC viewer.
