When logged on to the virtual machine pool page, the list of virtual machines allows them to be started but there is no way to access the machines using ssh. Rdp is given but if you only want ssh then you are faced with waiting until the registered user logs on to get the details of the port used for ssh access. It seems like an oversight to miss off the ssh details.

@awchisholm Can you let me know what distro you are using?  Also, did you choose to share the same password with all VMs or to have the user\student reset their password?
