Post the config of your container:
pct config CTID

Also what is running on this container? Any other container software like docker?

Can you access the container with:
pct enter CTID

If you can, then check if the network interfaces are up and configured properly.
This is result of running commands.

root@GPR:/home/log#pct config 107

arch: amd64
cores: 4
hostname: Sentry
memory: 4096
net0: name=eth0,bridge=vmbr1,hwaddr=A2:AE:78:2A:21:01,ip=dhcp,ip6=dhcp,type=veth
ostype: debian
rootfs: virthard1:107/vm-107-disk-0.raw,size=80G
swap: 0
unprivileged: 1

root@GPR:/home/log# pct enter 107

On this conteiner now only clear system + few programs like nginx, nano and so on. No doker or any else virtualization

Network is ok! But sssh daemon was die. Restart of ssh resolved my first problem.

I cant's access CT at all.

Looks like it access properly? "Sentry" is the hostname of the container and you seem to have a shell on it.

If you're not using it, you can try disabling IPv6 for this container (Remove ip6=dhcp or do it from GUI). I think there was a bug with DHCP IPv6 on some containers. After removing it, restart the container and try again.

If that doesn't work take a look at the network interfaces and the configuration for anything out of place.
network interfaces is ok even whith IPv6. Servise ssh failed to start during system starts. But 'service ssh start' starts manualy without problem. Now tryin to understand why.
