    Is there anything else you would like to learn, have learned, or can help with on MetalVPS?

    Maybe something that is not in a legal gray area like RDPWrap. (There are statements on the internet that it is legal, statements that it is illegal and statements that there is no definite answer for it).

    ヾ(*゚▽゚)ノ Hello♪
    I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for your concern and support. Your encouragement has been invaluable to me.(◕‿◕)
    I wanted to explain that in the first few days, I was researching how to connect to a Linux virtual machine on MetalVPS using RDP (I initially tried Ubuntu). Unfortunately, due to my slow internet speed, VNC services were too laggy for me. However, I was fortunate enough to come across tutorials by @cpsd and @itsmepaddi(salute to them( ̄^ ̄)ゞ), which helped me successfully connect my Win11 to Ubuntu using RDP(•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑. Compared to VNC, RDP was much smoother and more efficient.
    As a result, I thought it would be helpful to organize my thoughts and share them with others who may have similar needs. I would also appreciate any guidance or feedback from the community.
    However, I must admit that I tend to get easily distracted, and I've spent a pretty much time exploring LXC and Docker, so I'm just now starting to formally organize my thoughts and will be sharing them soon.
    I do have a few questions that I hope you can help me with:
    Is it necessary to use QEMU technology with KVM, or are there other ways to use it?
    I would like to try configuring and using Docker, but it seems that I do not have the necessary permissions. If it is convenient for you, could you please add me to the Docker group?(๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
    I also want to try LXC, but it seems that I do not have the necessary permissions. If it is convenient for you, could you please add me to the LXC group?(๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
    Thank you again for your support and guidance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Create Ubuntu VMs on VPS and connect via RDP using QEMU and port forwarding

    Create virtual disk files using QEMU technology

    First locate the VPS terminal in the home directory:
    To create a 20G virtual disk:

    qemu-img create -f qcow2 test.qcow2 20G
    

    If you are afraid of not having enough space, you can expand the disk by 10G:

    qemu-img resize test.qcow2 +10G
    

    Use curl to download iso files

    Install curl:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install curl
    

    Go to the official website of the linux distribution you want to use and extract the download link, here is ubuntu-22.04.2 as an example, run:

    curl -O https://releases.ubuntu.com/22.04.2/ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso
    

    This will download:

    ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso
    

    So you should have in your home directory:

    test.qcow2
    ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso
    

    Create and connect virtual machines with VNC using QEMU virtualization technology

    Run in the terminal in the home directory of the VPS (thanks to @cpsd for the code):

    qemu-system-x86_64 \
    -boot menu=on \
    -m 2048 \
    -cpu max \
    -smp 4 \
    -cdrom ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso \
    -vnc 0.0.0.0:59,password=on \
    -accel kvm \
    -monitor stdio \
    -hda test.qcow2
    

    So you should be able to enter @fsn.metalvps.com:59 or 88.198.14.252:59 in VNC Viewer or TigerVNC Viewer, press Enter to connect to your Ubuntu, and then don't forget to complete the installation of the Ubuntu system according to the prompt. Remember the username and password you set
    Because of my high network latency, the experience of VNC service is poor, so I want to seek RDP connection, which may improve the situation (it turns out that enabling RDP connection does improve a lot and reduces a lot of stuttering)

    Enable xrdp service

    It seems that Windows uses the RDP protocol to connect to Ubuntu, requiring the xrdp service to be installed and enabled in advance in Ubuntu:

    Press Ctrl+Alt+T in the VNC-Ubuntu interface to enter the Ubuntu terminal
    Run in sequence:
    sudo apt update

    This step updates the Ubuntu software package list to ensure you can install the latest version of the software package

    sudo apt install xrdp

    This step installs the xrdp package, which is an open source software that allows remote desktop connections.

    sudo systemctl enable xrdp

    This step enables the xrdp service so that it automatically starts when the system boots.

    sudo ufw allow from any to any proto tcp

    This step allows remote desktop connections on TCP port 3389 through Ubuntu's firewall.

    This will allow other computers to remotely connect to your Ubuntu computer via Remote Desktop.

    Then close the VNC window,
    Enter quit in the VPS terminal to exit the virtual machine

    Port forwarding

    Run in the terminal in the VPS home directory (thanks to @itsmepaddi for providing the code):

    qemu-system-x86_64 \
      -cpu host \
      --enable-kvm \
      -m 4096 \
      -hda test.qcow2 \
      -cdrom ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso \
      -net nic,model=virtio \
      -net user,hostfwd=tcp::53999-:3389 \
      -usbdevice tablet \
      -monitor stdio
    

    You can understand these parameters to customize them in the future:

    • qemu-system-x86_64: This is the command to start the virtual machine. It will call the QEMU program to create the virtual machine.
    1. -cpu host: This option tells QEMU to use the host CPU features to simulate the virtual machine's CPU.
    2. --enable-kvm: This option enables the KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) module, which can improve the performance of the virtual machine.
    3. -m 4096: This option sets the virtual machine's memory size to 4GB.
    4. -hda test.qcow2: This option specifies the hard disk image file of the virtual machine as test.qcow2.
    5. -cdrom ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso: This option specifies the optical drive image file of the virtual machine as ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso.
    6. -net nic,model=virtio: This option enables a virtual network interface and uses the virtio model to simulate the network device.
    7. -net user,hostfwd=tcp::53999-:3389: This option maps port 3389 of the virtual machine to port 53999 of the host, so you can remotely connect to the virtual machine via RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). (This step is critical!!!)
    8. -usbdevice tablet: This option enables a virtual USB device that simulates a touchpad for easy operation in the virtual machine.
    9. -monitor stdio: This option enables a console monitor where commands can be entered in the console to control the virtual machine. stdio indicates using standard input and output as the console
      You don't have to use port 53999 like me. You can run in the VPS terminal:
    netstat -tlnp | awk '{print 4}' | awk -F':' '{print4}' | awk -F':' '{print NF}' | sort -n | awk 'BEGIN{start=1025}{if (1!=start)printstart"−"1−1;start=1!=start) {print start"-"1−1;start=1!=start) {print start"-"1-1}; start=1+1}END{if (start<=65535) print start"-"65535}'
    

    This will filter out some ports that may be available, pick one of your favorite "x ports" from them to replace 53999

    Success

    Finally, search and open RDP on Windows, enter @fsn.metalvps.com:53999 or 88.198.14.252:53999 (@fsn.metalvps.com:x or 88.198.14.252:x)


    Enter the username and password you set up earlier in Ubuntu

    enjoy! ~(˘▾˘)~

    So you did a triple wrong in message, there is a option to edit it if it wrong, you can try it out (Only work if you post it > 1 hours )

    Just so people don't think you are crazy responding to a comment that is no longer there. I will note that I removed the double post (2nd correction) and the third correction comment that you quoted and fixed the original comment to contain the correct link as stated by the OP, but it does not seem to work for me.

    Hi, @Not_Oles Can I also get access to the new server or no?

    Hi @RtedPro!

    Yes, the new server, or another server might become available to you. 🤔

    You seem like a great guy, and I notice that you haven't caused us any trouble. On the other hand, we haven't heard much about what you are doing on the server. Do you have any tips for those of us who know less than you? Do you have any questions or any . . . anything?

    How do you feel about trying to become more active here in our thread? Maybe you could start becoming more active by telling us more about what you are doing today on the server? Besides what you are doing right now, what would you add or change if you had sudo? What would be the reasons which support your changes? Any disadvantages we might want to consider?

    Thanks for this post! It's appreciated! It's great to hear from you! <3

    Actually, I have to turn on VPN to use ping. If I don't turn on VPN, it will be like this:

    Anything about my studies is a secret because of privacy reasons.

    You didn't give any reason for why you need access to the other server. Remember, the discussion about the new server started when we were talking about memory resident VMs that somebody wanted to try? And I asked about trying the memory resident VMs on the new server because it has 128GB of RAM?

    I want to try the new server because I would like to test how the performance of the new server is, and I want to compare it with the current 64GB RAM MetalVPS server.

    By the way, I saw your nice comment over at Nodeseek. I haven't had a chance to reply there yet. But I am delighted to thank you both here and also there! <3

    Thanks for your questions!

    Is it necessary to use QEMU technology with KVM, or are there other ways to use it?

    You do not have to use KVM. But, typically, without KVM, the performance is very significantly slower. I am unaware of additional ways to use Qemu. Probably there are additional ways.

    For completeness, you do not have to use Qemu at all. It's possible just to work on the node itself. Working directly on the node should be faster than Qemu with KVM and and much faster than Qemu without KVM. Working directly on the node is also faster than using LXC.

    I would like to try configuring and using Docker, but it seems that I do not have the necessary permissions. If it is convenient for you, could you please add me to the Docker group?(๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

    I haven't used Docker very much. From @yoursunny I heard that adding people to the docker group is equivalent to giving them root on the server. If you Google search "docker group privilege escalation" there seems to be a lot of information available.

    I wondered about making a server with just Docker containers. Maybe neighbors could provision Docker containers and root could start the containers for the neighbors? I don't know if this would work, what the limitations would be, or whether it would be interesting to others.

    I also want to try LXC, but it seems that I do not have the necessary permissions. If it is convenient for you, could you please add me to the LXC group?(๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

    I have been waiting for someone to ask about LXC. So far, no one has spoken up about LXC. There are additional configuration steps needed on the node before LXC can function. Maybe someone will want to help get LXC going.

    For completeness, there are additional virtualization methods besides Qemu and LXC and Docker.

    I am delighted to hear from you! More soon! Have a great day! :)

    No problem!

    Here's a life lesson for you. To earn trust you must tell people something about you.

    This way people can relate to you and build some emotional connection to you. This is what trust is based upon.

    You can keep it to yourself, but then expect people to not help you getting what you want.

    Then don't blame people for not being generous with you.

    [Tutorial] Create Ubuntu VMs on VPS and connect via RDP using QEMU and port forwarding

    btw: I hosted this as my first blog at:

    It looks more beautiful and readable
    Chinese-speaking buddies can go and see
    Thank you for your support. I have really learned a lot from you guys (ɔ ̆⌣ ̆) ̆⌣ ̆ c)

    Dear @NodeSeek用户123! <3

    Thank you for your wonderful post here and also for your wonderful blog post via xlog.app!

    When I put the above link for xlog.app into Google Translate, I was shown an error page which said something like "Can't translate this page." The error message was accompanied by an image which seemed to be a dog with it's leg tied. I got most of the translation by copying the text off the page and pasting it into Google Translate. I wonder why Google Translate does not work with xlog.app.

    Thank you for identifying yourself as a beginner and then reinforcing your self-identification by taking beginner steps such as your use of netstat together with awk.

    When I previously was offering here at LES the Alpine Linux server at HE FMT there were a few Chinese guys whose contributions seemed outstanding to me. These outstanding contributions were what motivated me to try making a Nodeseek account and offering this over there. Now I have learned a lot from the Chinese guys both here at LES and over at our neighboring Nodeseek forum.

    Your choice of RDP is interesting! I have wanted to try Spice because there is a Spice app on my Chromebook.

    I wonder what might be your next step on the server. If you expect to continue. :)

    If you wish, please answer or please do not answer (either way is good) a few off topic questions, which I can not resist asking:

    • How is your C programming?
    • How is your wenyanwen and guwen?
    • Now that I might know one Chinese character (刀, dāo, knife, dollar (informal)), what should be my next character to learn? More generally, by what method should I select additional characters to try to learn?

    Thank you for your wonderful contributions to our community here at LES and at MetalVPS!

    Yes! :) In the second image that you posted I see "SVBus Virtual Hard Disk SCSI RAM Device." :)

    Excellent! 🤩 What's next? :)


    Now that you had a chance to try this, @itsmepaddi wanted to get on the second server. Would you, @iamvinh123 and @dinopotato, want @itsmepaddi to join you on the second server? If yes, one of you can please make an account on the second server for @itsmepaddi. And please give him membership in the sudo and kvm groups. Or else it's also okay to ask me to make the account.

    Maybe MetalVPS might be on its way to becoming self-administered? 😸

    Hi @NgocNguyen8372!

    You said "Ok sure" to @dinopotato's request for an 8G / 4vCPU limit. But now I am seeing 9G / cores = 5.

    ngocngu+  111487  127 14.4 10956412 9504380 pts/21 Sl+ 11:34 918:16 qemu-system-x86_64 -m 9G -cpu host --enable-kvm -smp cores=5 -boot d -hda ssd.qcow2 -monitor stdio -vnc :69,password=on -net nic,model=e1000 -net user,hostfwd=tcp::1112-:4445 -machine usb=on -device usb-tablet -vga qxl
    

    Also, you did not say much about @dinopotato's question "What kind of VM are you using?" Maybe you could have said something about which OS you are using and what software you are running? Maybe you could have said something about what you are trying to accomplish here at MetalVPS?

    You also seemed to have at least four screen sessions open, some from a couple of days ago. Are you forgetting to close your old acreen sessions?

    When I asked you and your friend Kadim where you guys met, you both said "online."

    @NgocNguyen8372 said: I meet him online

    @Kadim1998 said: We meet each other online in 2021

    I agree that people's privacy is important, but, nevertheless, maybe you guys could have been a bit more specific?

    Honestly, it is concerning that you took more resources than the amount to which you had agreed after having been called out by @dinopotato for using the server too heavily. Nobody forced you to agree to @dinopotato's request, but you agreed. Then you took more than the agreed amount! Moreover, it seems you might not want to share details about what you are doing on the server.

    I think someone could use even more resources than you originally were using when @dinopotato spoke up. I think, if someone asked here about some specific project or test that he wanted to run, probably everyone would want to be supportive. On the other hand, maybe the guys who take and take, silently, deserve less support from our community?

    I suspended your MetalVPS account for awhile so we all can take a moment to think about what happened and how best to proceed. I apologize for the inconvenience. I will keep trying to reinstate your account and to add an account for your friend @Kadim1998.

    Best wishes and kindest regards!

    Tom

    So . . . 45 minutes after @NgocNguyen8372 says "Ok sure" someone else has to ask! :( After someone else asks, he takes more than the amount to which he agreed.
