6- Once you completed Step 5, please allow 2-3 minutes for the VPS to shutdown. Then restart and you should start getting internet connection. At this Point, you won't be able to connect to your VPS, simply keep refreshing this page from your browser.

*** You will also notice that the "Guest OS" and "IP Address" fields are both empty, so keep refreshing the page.

7- Keep refreshing your browser until you see the "IP Address" field be filled with your own IP. Once your IP address starts showing (see below screenshot), you can start connecting to your VPS. However, we recommended that you wait until both the IP Address and Guest OS are listed (see step 8).

8- Once your VPS is up and ready to use, both the IP Address and Guest OS will be listed (see below screenshot).
