To use the local terminal, proceed as follows:

  1. Start the local terminal. The start options are described under Terminals.
  2. Log in as user or root.

    If under Setup > Security > Password, in the Administrator area, the option Use password is enabled, you will need to enter the administrator password to access a local terminal as root.

    If an administrator password is set, accessing a local terminal as user is only possible if the following two conditions are met:

    • Access to local terminals has been activated for user. This is possible with the registry key The default setting of the registry key forbids terminal access for user.
    • Under Setup > Security > Password, in the User area,  the option Use password is enabled.

    For accessing a local terminal as user, the user password will have to be entered.

    You can enter the shell commands supported by IGEL OS.
