Watch this video to learn how to access you Minicloud instance:
When accessing your vm via ssh it is important to pay attention to how the port number is built. Let’s suppose your vm got the IP 10.8.40.0, in order to access it you must execute ssh @minicloud.parqtec.unicamp.br -p 40000. The port is always a number with 5 digits, where the first two digits are the third octet and the last digits are the last octet. Following this rule, the IP 10.8.40.1 becomes the port 40001 and the IP 10.8.59.254 becomes the port 59254.
