Howto enable SSH on VMware ESXi 5.1



Step 1: By Default SSH is disabled, so we have to enable that if you want to use.

Use vSphere Client to connect to ESXi Server

Click on Configuration tab ->Select security profile -> Click on Properties.

ESXi Security Profile

Step 2: SSH –> Service Commands –> Start

Start SSH

Done. Now you can use SSH tools (putty, winscp) to connect to your ESXi 5.1.0 Server.

Thanks for using
