The KVM IP allows you control your server as if your sitting in front of it during an remote session. This allows you see the server booting up and to resolve any network issues you may have on the server. Once you have placed an order, you will get an email confirming the KVM has been installed to the server and you will have an set of credentials for the KVM IP.
- Server: kvm4139.ovh.net - Encryption: "Prefer On" - Username: kvm - Password: my_KVM_Access

At this stage, you will be on the KVM IP console page, where you can login to the server even when the server is experiencing network issues. You can also access the virtual media to install your own OS:
