Connect to Orbit Through SSH


Now that you have an Orbit fully setup, we can finally use it. In this guide we will be looking into how to log into your Orbit through the console.


  • Running Orbit

SSH into Orbit

  1. First we need to check some details on our orbit by first navigating to the “My Orbits” tab.

    My Orbits

  2. Once there, click on the Orbit you want to connect to and check for three things:

    • IP Address

    • Running Status

    • Source Image(Ubuntu, Debian, Centos, Fedora

    Orbit Details

  3. Once you have confirmed that your Orbit is running and you have the other information. Open up your console.

  4. Now you can SSH into your Orbit by running.

    ssh image@address
    • IP Address: We got this from the detail page, in this case it is “”

    • Image: We got this from the source image in the details page. It should be one of the following: ubuntu, debian, fedora, centos

    • Note: A full command for this example would be: “ssh ubuntu@”

  5. Now it will ask you for a password. Input the password that you set in the authentication method when you first created the Orbit. It will ask you to change your temporary password into a permanent one and log you out afterwards. Now log into the Orbit and you should see a screen like this.
