Free NAT VPS

Link
Get free NAT VPS:
1. Make a free account
2. Make container, make sure to make it private and "blank", with either ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04

3. Go into container settings, make it invite-only and readonly for invites unless you want to actually share it


4. Enable always on
5. Forward ports if needed
6. Start container with the terminal icon, run passwd and set a new password

7. Go into settings again to check ssh port
8. Connect and enojy!

by default they add a broken repo to the ubuntu 16.04 image (possibly also the 18.04 image, didn't test), you can safely remove it by removing /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudfoundry-cli.list

    This is better than I thought, it looks like an AWS m5a.2xlarge VM just without a public IP. Must be expensive to provide, but I assume it's VC money somewhere.

  • This is a nice, polished service. Would be brill in the classroom!

  • It seems that even if it is KVM based, it is not possible to change the OS by yourself. IPv6 connectivity is not available either.

  • Thanks! Got one just setup.

    Not sure how the uptime became 15 days since I just created an account and this container a few minutes ago. Maybe they pre-spin up a few containers and clear out files then assign them out to accounts?

    it's free to set one up and @szymonp gave really good instructions so you can confirm (I'm probably doing something wrong)

  • @Janevski said:

    Also I'm not sure if this technically qualifies as a NAT VPS since it looks like there's an IPv4 assigned to the machine (the ssh instructions ask me to ssh directly via IPv4 on the usual port 22)

    Docker, shows the Host Memory.

  • Always On is apparently a premium feature now.
