I've deployed a Fedora20 Beta qcow2 image in a VM, but I'm unable to login.

What is the default user and password? And what is the cloud-init program that starts at boot? it tries to contact some http url, but it fails.

I cannot find any documentation about it. Thank you.

The default username is "fedora", no default password but you can set it using the cloud-init service which, as you mention, starts at boot time in your cloud VM.

I use the "No cloud" datasource because I'm not using OpenStack or any other cloud provisioning software.

You can set your password, ip interfaces and other things. See the documentation here:

With Fedora 24 I can't login without password but nocloud ISO is very easy to generate with instructions from your link.

Confirmed there is no default password in latest releases
