Unable to SSH to Proxmox Default LXC Ubuntu 14.X and 16.X VPS

By default it’s not possible to establish a direct SSH connection to a Proxmox’s default Ubuntu 14.x or 16.x LXC VPS.

In order to SSH into a Ubuntu 14.x and 16.x LXC VPS you need to use NoVNC Console to apply following commands:

Modify /etc/ssh/sshd_config

nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Change Config

PermitRootLogin without-password to PermitRootLogin yes

Restart SSH Service

service ssh restart
