RE: dell r710 cannot connect to SSH centOS 7

Hi,

Are you trying to SSH to the iDRAC or directly to the server’s IP address? Are you getting an error?

Hi

Yes I need to connect directly through IP,  I can use idrac console to do that setup or directly from physical server but that the not solution. I need to connect to OS directly from putty SSH server. How can i do that? Thanks

Have you installed the ssh packages? https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Network/SecuringSSH

No, can you please give me step by step guide line for connecting to my CentOS 7 from IP via SSH? I can install SSH in CentOS then what configuration or else I have to do to be able to successfully connect VIA SSH?

Also if I configure direct SSH connection from IP, will still be able to connect my Idrac through IP? I don't want to lose my Idrac option. I need both

RE: dell r710 cannot connect to SSH centOS 7

I am trying to install SSH but its saying no network connection

seems nmcli d comment saying that em1 to em4 is ethernet unavailable. loopback is unmanaged

I am using dedicated IDRAC 6 enterprise, is it I use the wrong port to connect my ethernet cable? if yes which one is a correct port for using IDRAC dedicated setting and the internet for my CentOS 7. thanks
