There is a section in VirtualBox where you will find the list of available virtual servers, chose “MPS-Satellite”, and power it on. If network connection is set properly than the console screen will ask for login and password. If not, than you should try to redefine network settings in Virtual Box – it is important whether you use Ethernet connection or Wireless – set it as it should be, and restart server.

Default login and password are:

login: mps
hasło: satellite

+ - LAN Configuration

Specifications of Network in which MPS Satellite will be searching for printers is usually dependent on the administrator, therefore it is necessary to adjust the connection parameters. For demonstration purposes we set automatic IP address getting – by using DHCP functions.

ifconfig -a

It should return something like:

Save and remember the name that will be displayed in a place where the demonstration screen sequence is: ens33. This string must be included in the configuration file accessible after the call command:

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

Upper command will run text editor, where you need to adopt previous string

#The primary network interface
auto ens33
iface ens33 inet dhcp

Save it by closing editor with combination of “Ctrl+X

+ - Restart and final IP loading

Now you need to reboot server by commend:

sudo reboot

System will be restarted and after that it should get IP addres under which you can find out MPS Satellite interface.
