How to Connect to DRAC for Dedicated Servers

We use a VPN to secure access to the DRAC for a dedicated server

NOTE: The VPN logins are the same logins that you use to access https://billing.digitalpacific.com.au - the username will be your email address and the password that was sent when the Digital Pacific account was set up (unless this has been changed to something else, then use that password.

DRAC requires the latest version of Java 7. You will need to install this from the Oracle website.
