Project description

Use clis:

sudo apt-get install python3-pip
sudo pip3 install clis
sudo iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -d -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 8088

Now you can boot images downloaded from here (filename matches *-disk1.img).

Known to work with vivid and trusty.

Server will feed your ssh key (~/.ssh/ to image and you can log in via ssh. Default username for ubuntu images is ubuntu.

It is poosible to specify alternate ssh public key(s) by command line:

clis -k ~/.ssh/ -k ~/.ssh/

When clis is running you may boot cloud image and see ip address of VM in logs. Just ssh to this address:

ssh ubuntu@

You may want to uninstall cloud-init from VM and turn it to non-cloud image:

ubuntu@vm-192-168.122.42:~$ sudo apt-get remove cloud-init

What is cloud-init

Cloud image is usual image with cloud-init package installed. Cloud-init is software which trying to access magic url and get VM configuration from there. Different versions of cloud-init “protocol” supported by different versions of images. All this versions are poorly documented or not documented at all.
