Connect to the VM Teradata sample. TDExpress14.0.3_Sles10: ?

How do I connect to the sample Teradata DB in the VM of Teradata Express ?... From BTEQ at the command line it connects and I can run simple SQL as in the example.
I am not sure what the Database Server name should be and what the Database name is... It is not documented anywhere and using testServer and testDB fails...
Thank you.

The Database Server is the host name of the Teradata server you are connecting to. You can also entire an IP address. The Database name is the default database you are connecting to. You can leave it blank and it will use DBC as the default database. Click the '?' in the lower left hand of the dialog and Help text is provided.
