How to use the serial console to connect to an Instance
This page shows how to connect to your Scaleway Instance from the Scaleway console using the serial console (TTY, from TeleTYpewriter). It provides a way to connect to your Instance for debugging or if it loses its network connectivity. The serial console remains available even if you can not reach your Instance over the internet.
You have to connect to your Instance using SSH and define a user password before connecting to your Instance using the serial console.

- Click the Instance you want to connect to.
- Click Console on the Instance Information page. The serial console (TTY) displays in a popup.
