Basic Commands

Start SSH Server

Secure SHell (SSH) access to the Master Server is disabled by default. To enable SSH access, run:

service sshd start
Keep SSH disabled to prevent unauthorized remote access.

To check how much free disk space there is on your Master Server, run df -h. This displays information about disk usage on the Master Server's local disks, and on mounted file systems.

Configure Network Interface

To change your network settings, you can run the Master Server network interface configuration script again:

/usr/sbin/configure-ip.sh

Follow the on-screen instructions to configure your Master Server's network settings.
