New to SolidCP: console logins, VPS creation

I was recently given an opportunity to test out solidcp as a user/peer. I'm a linux/open source hobbyist for over 20 years, so I was curious to try out this windows server and see what it's like.

So far, I've enjoyed the experience but I hit a couple stumbling blocks: 1 major and 1 minor.

1. When attempting to log into windows server via console, the server doesn't seem to accept my credentials. I've tried over and over to change the passswords: I tried longer and shorter passwords, I tried removing all the special characters and even all lowercase. Whatever I try, and no matter how long I wait, the password I set never seems to work. I attempted to attach an image of where I'm trying to change the password. (edit) which didn't appear to work. You can view the image in a crossp osted thread here: (I know crossposting isn't good for seo, but it is good for problem solving 🙂

2. The other issue I'm having, is when I create a customer acct and try to make a vps, it tells me there is no IP available in the pool; but if I try to create a vm under my peer acct the IP is available. Is this intentional for security purposes or the result of a setting/configuration?

As a user/peer, I don't know offhand what solidcp is running on, but I'm happy to write the admin and request any information that might be useful in diagnosing these problems.

2. For a customer acct you should first allocate IPs for a Hosting Space (for security reason, customers shouldn't have access to not allocated IPs), however under a Reseller or a CSR you can skip this step and select IPs for the customer VM, they will be allocated automatically to the customer Hosting Space after the VM is created.
