  1. You may choose to create a New Disk for the workflow, or you can start a workflow that uses an Existing Disk. If creating a New Disk, you will need to provide a name for the disk, and a size in GB. If you are using an Existing Disk, the Name and Size fields for the New Disk option must be blank.

  1. The Access from field will be filled out automatically to your computer's current IP address. In the future, if you need to access this workflow from another location, you can update this field to a new IP address. If you encounter issues due to an IPv6 address, you can convert the IPv6 address to an IPv4 address.
