Can't ssh from OMV host to KVM VM

  • I m running a KVM ubuntu server.

    I m trying to ssh from OMV to the server but it does not connect.

    can connect from ubuntu server to other KVM without problem.

    Is there a solution?

    This is probably due to the networking type you are using on the VM but we have not details about the VM.

    omv 5.6.5 usul | 64 bit | 5.11 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 5.6.1
    omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github

  • That is one of the drawbacks of using macvtap. If you want to be able to ssh from host to guest, you will need to setup a bridge network adapter (not in the plugin) and then the network adapter type on the VM will have to be changed to bridge that uses the newly created bridge interface. I think that is a pain myself and never have a need to ssh from the host to the VM. I just ssh from the machine that I ssh to the host from.
