I am pretty new to ESXI 6, i have installed it today on my HP Proliant DL160 G6 without any problems.
I've created an VPS and installed Ubuntu Server 14.04.02 x64.
I have found some information in Google, check this out: http://www.thomasmaurer.ch/2011/08/enable-ssh-on-esxi-5-via-vsphere-client/
Here is a screenshots of my Client:
The local IP for the VPS that i am trying to connect is 192.168.1.96. I have tested ping in CMD to 192.168.1.96 i have no problems.
I am trying to connect to the VPS with Putty and here is the error i got from Putty when trying to connect to the VPS:
The port on which i am testing it is 22.
Can you please help me out ?
Thanks in advance!
Sorry cause the screenshots from the VMware client confused me as these settings have nothing to do with the ssh access to the Ubuntu VM.
I assume when you installed the Ubuntu VM you have specified to allow the incoming ssh connections and also installed the ssh server on it.
This is purely OS issue of the VM since you can ping it.
I am not familiar with Ubuntu to tell you the commands you need to run but check for /etc/sshd to confirm the ssh server is installed and as a quick fix try to disable the firewall of the UB server.
this should help you setup SSH for the ubuntu VM.
The firewall configuration you went through above was to allow ssh to the esx server, so its not applicable.
