VF61 denies remot access


after setting a password for root VF61 denies remote access.

“PermitRootLogin yes” in sshd_config did not help.

Attempt to login as root causes :
“Using keyboard-interactive authentication”

Entering the password causes connection abort.

What is to do ?

I suspect that you face some issue as described in the troubleshooting section here.

Hallo Marcel,

thank you for your advice.

Setting a hashtag at “#PermitEmptyPasswords yes” in “/etc/ssh/sshd_config” solved the problem.

Best regards

Glad it is working for you now and thanks for letting us know.
