How to log in to LXC debian jessie container


I finally installed my Turris Omnia and am playing around a bit.

Via the luci admin interface I managed to create and start an LXC container running debian jessie. Now it is unclear to me how to access that container.

root@turris:~# lxc-console -n debian

Connected to tty 1
Type <Ctrl+a q> to exit the console, <Ctrl+a Ctrl+a> to enter Ctrl+a itself

Debian GNU/Linux 8 LXC_NAME tty1

LXC_NAME login: 
Debian GNU/Linux 8 LXC_NAME tty1

Which login / password to use to access this container that (according to the luci interface) was created from the standard image at

i think you have to first use lxc-attach <container-name> , that gives you direct shell (if as root, you will be logged as root directly), so later you can make all the normal stuff with new debian passwd,sudoers, new users…etc…) …, once finished with basic setup, you can use lxc-console.

Yes, that works. Thanks a lot.
