Hello - I have a strange situation
We have a ESX server with ESX version 3 (Dali) and 2 servers with ESX version 4 (Kandinsky).
I can "SSH server_version_4" without problem from ESX version 3 server, and I am requested the password to start it.
Also "SCP localfile remote_user@server_version_4:." works without problem.
This indicates SSHD works on version 4 server(s).
But if I try SSH or SCP from one version 4 server, (to either version 3 or 4 destination)
the connection is not established, getting "port 22: Connection refused" message.
How can I enable (incoming/outgoing) SSH and SCP on ESX version 4 ?
Thanks a lot. Sebastian.
PD.- I am never using "root" user for those connections, and dont want to do it.
Solution (via Google) :
start vSphere Client
Under Software, expand Security Profile
Activate SSH Client
OR from command line in ESX Server please type
esxcfg-firewall -e sshClient --> this will enable the SSH Client
to save this configuration please type - service mgmt-vmware restart - After this evern across the reboot you will be able tossh
Yes, I like the command like a lot, but I agree I haven't had the time to go in deep thru all of those commands and flags.
Thanks a lot : this one shall be (maybe) the starting point to do so !
Beside opening the firewall port remeber that "root" is not allowed to log on via ssh in ESX4 by default anymore. Either you create a proxy user or you change the "/etc/sshd_config".

As I said earlier on this thread, I dont want o use root ar remote user, and I think it is a very very bad habit.
