  • - provides some basic Linux commands

OVA image

An ova image is a virtual machine image that is designed to run inside a hypervisor (like virtualbox). In order to use it on your home machine, you can download the OVA file from here.

If you are in the lab, you should NOT download this file directly, instead use the script which will download it into temporary storage (/tmp/).

This will let you use linux commands in bash, change permissions and see the effects.
