ssh/telnet client in cpanel

    I don't understand that ssh/telnet client feature in cpanel.

    I tried using it and it does not work. I enter username/password and it (supposdely) logs in and but the cursor just sits there and does nothing. I am using IE 6 also.

    Anyone knows the story behind this thing?

    Also, I want to change the port 22 to something else, I tried 26 on a server, restarted ssh after adding 26 to the allowed ports in APF firewall and then attempted to login via Putty but tells me connection refused. What have I done wrong?

    I changed
    #port 22
    to
    port 26


    As for trying to login to ssh/telnet in cpanel, that is another case on a different server that is using default port 22. Reason why I'm testing that is because someone needs to use it to login from another country where port 22 is not allowed. I am testing it with default port first to see if it allows to login with sudo root. Perhaps you can answer this now for me :)

    Thanks

    Make sure SSH is enabled for the user you are trying to access?

    and if your are trying to su to root add that user to Manage wheel group :)

    Yes, the user is allowed full (normal) ssh access and is already in the wheelgroup. Please see attachment.

    sunds like you might have a bug with the ssh in cpanel, does it do the same thing using ssh or putty I never use the ssh window in cpanel



    try crtr c a couple of times and see if it resets the screen

    Putty works fine, but someone requires this cpanel version for now.

    Did you mean control+c ? I tried that, nothing
