Download PuTTY. It is a program that allows you to manually connect to an IP address via a terminal window.
When you run the program, connect to the IP address:

Type in the following lines of code:
cd /opt/openrov/cockpit/linux
sudo bash

It will then run through the process and end with what you see in the attached screenshot.
