Once this VM is provisioned, you can access the N|Solid Console dashboard by simply launching a browser and navigating to the VM's public IP. You will be prompted for credentials, which by default, expects "nsolid" as the username, and "nodesource" as the password (you can change these).
For all other management needs, you can simply SSH into the machine. For more information on how to get started, refer to the N|Solid on Azure tutorial.
