    If you are connecting from a Unix-like machine (Mac OS or Linux), or by using PuTTY with Windows then the command to connect is simply
    ssh [user]@[ip address]

    where [user] is your username, typically root, and [ip address] is the IP address of the virtual machine.
    # for example:
    ssh root@204.44.81.XX
