Yes, you can start your selected mission in any computer that has a web browser and network connection a minimal of 3 Mb/s to get the most out of the experience.
Yes, you can, but not all of them. Currently you're not able to use ```Alt+Tab```, because it'll switch between your local machine's windows instead of the virtual machine's. Use ```Shift+Alt+Tab``` instead.
In order to copy data within the lab use the well known `Ctrl+C` keyboard shortcut. Now, if you wish to paste previously copied data to a terminal within your lab you should use either `Ctrl+Shift+V` or `Shift+Insert` keyboard shortcuts. Everywhere else the ordinary paste (```Ctrl+V```) combination works.
Missions and Sieges
Q1: What's the difference between a training lab and a siege?Q2: I'm a beginner. What should I learn first?Q3: Can I skip missions and go straight to the siege?Q4: Do I have to complete all the missions?Q5: Can I access my missions or siege offline?
A training lab, is meant for learning new hands-on practical skills with supporting theory alongside it. Training labs are suitable for users who wish to learn something new in their own pace and time. A siege is for more advanced users who want to test out their skills and knowledge compared to other specialists working in the same field.
There are various paths you can take, but if you're new to our system we advise you to start by taking the "Introductory mission" to get more familiar with the system and then continue with more complex missions.
Yes, of course! Siege is meant for more advanced users who want to test their skill set with other same field specialist. If you're one of them go straight to the battle field.
No, you don't. Although some of the missions are linked as a track you can easily skip the parts you're more experienced in and move to a mission less known to you.
No, unfortunately you can't. Since the system runs in a virtual environment and is cloud based you need to have internet connection to get access to the machines assigned to you during your learning process.
Q1: I accidentally crashed my server. What should I do now?Q2: How can I report a bug or a typo?Q3: I didn't find my question here, what should I do now?
Don't worry! Every mistake is a step closer to greater knowledge. The easiest way is to go back to user hub (rangeforce.com), end your mission manually and start from the beginning.
