    Hi guys

    Client has a VPS from Blacknight running Parallels Panel. Can't find any mention of version but I imagine it's very recent.

    I can't seem to enable SSH access to this. If I go to Login>Websites & Domains (Tab) > Web Hosting Access, I can see a setting called 'Access to server over SSH: Forbidden'

    There's no way to enable this and I have the highest level admin rights.

    Any ideas?

    If it's a Linux machine then it's on by default BUT you might need to check the firewall rules

    You can check if the SSH server is running on your machine with:

    telnet 22

    If you get a greeting like the one below, it's time to check for the daemon settings in the file "/etc/ssh/sshd_config". this is the place where password logins are enabled or disabled.

    daemon response:

    [ralph@laptop]~% telnet 22
    Connected to
    Escape character is '^]'.
