sudo echo ubuntu:yourpassword | chpasswd
Now the password for ubuntu user is set, you can connect to the VM's desktop environment from any local windows machine using RDP protocol or local linux machine using Remmina.
To connect using RDP via Windows Machine, first note the public IP address of the VM from VM details page as highlighted below
Then From you local windows machine, goto "start" menu , in the search box type and select "Remote desktop connection"
In the "Remote desktop connection" wizard, copy the public IP address and click connect
This will connect you to the VM's desktop environment. Provide the username (e.g "ubuntu") and the password set in the above "Reset password" step to authenticate. Click OK
Now you are connected to the out of box MUJEFA environment.
To connect using RDP via Linux machine, first note the external IP of the VM from VM details page,then from your local Linux machine, goto menu , in the search box type and select "Remmina".
Note: If you don't have Remmina installed on your Linux machine, first Install Remmina as per your linux distribution.

This will connect you to the VM's desktop environment. Provide "ubuntu" as the userid and the password set in above "Reset Password" step to authenticate. Click OK
Now you are connected to the out of box MUJEFA environment via Linux machine.
You can use the remote desktop you connected in above step for using the VM, however, more convenient and better method is to use the Jupyter/Ipython notebook which comes with the VM .
The Notebook is available on the same public IP you used for remote desktop and accessible via any browser. Just open the browser and type the public IP address (in this case http:// 188.8.131.52 ) and you will get below screen for login . Use “ubuntu” as username and the password you set to login.
