Introduction

Proxmox VE is simple. There is no need to install a separate management tool, everything can be done via your web browser (Latest Firefox and Google Chrome is preferred, also IE works). To access VM/CT console, a built in HTML5 console is used. As alternative, a Java browser plugin or SPICE can be used.

The web interface can be reached via https://youripaddress:8006 (default login is: root, the password is specified during the installation).

As we use Proxmox Cluster file system (pmxcfs),you can connect to any node to manage the whole cluster. There is no single master any more.
