Can't update iptables

I have MineOS installed on a Hyper-V headless server virtual. I got one MC server up and running no problem. I’m working on my second, get it up and running, but the port’s closed, and iptables needs root.

I can’t install sudo, because I can’t get root. I can’t edit the ssl config because I can’t access root.

If the OS is running in a virtual, is there any way to get root access? Why is sudo not installed by default?

If you’re running the MineOS Turnkey distro, you set the root password upon installation. Here’s the relevant timestamped vid:

I totally forgot that step; I’d just set up several virtuals and they all ran together. Thanks!
