Loading ISO via Remote Control

This article will guide you on how to load your OS via the Remote Management Interface on your Self-Managed Server. 

Servers with a private Remote Management Interface IP can activate the RMI Tunnel in konsoleH and the xneelo Control Panel.

This can be performed using either a Windows or Linux local computer. Mac is not recommended as there are various Java incompatibilities.
