How To Use Control Center And P2P¶
Follow these steps:
- First of all, you need to sign in to the Control Center application > by using your current login and password from Subutai Bazaar.

Environments Here you will see the list of all your current Environments. After clicking the name of environment, you will see a popup window:
SSH Here you can get access to a SSH connection to your environment: it will open a command line, already logged in to your container. This button allows users to easily connect with containers via SSH without any additional actions.
DESKTOP By using this button you will be able to open the Desktop of your Peer with a comfortable user interface, and work there as in any PC. This service was created for comfortable access to containers and to work with them using graphic interface. It will only work on Environments running a graphic user interface.
If you have several containers, you can get fast access to all of them by using “Desktop All” or “SSH All” buttons. Here also you need to have deployed SSH keys for access to your containers.
Transfer File - Transfer and srote any type of file to and from your containers. Click the button and a new window will appear, divided in two parts: 1. Local directory (users/admin path by default); 2. Remote container’s directory (root path). There you can see some buttons: upload to remote container, switch directory, refresh directory. Download from remote container, switch directory, refresh directory.
Local Peers - If you installed a Peer on the same computer where the Control Center is running, you can access it here.

RH port - this is the port of the Resource Host. RH user - name of user on Resource Host, which was informed when you were registering your Peer on the Subutai Bazaar. RH-password is the password from your Peer. Here you can search available Peers.
