Hello,

I just installed a Proxmox server.

I cannot access its console via the web interface.

Error:

Code:
Code:
timed out waiting for client
TASK ERROR: command '/usr/bin/termproxy 5900 --path /nodes/Proxmox --perm Sys.Console -- /bin/login -f root' failed: exit code 4
Via ssh it works.

But if I install a container with for example CentOS 8, I can't access its console via the web interface either.


Here is the error:

Code:
Code:
timed out waiting for client
TASK ERROR: command '/usr/bin/termproxy 5900 --path /vms/100 --perm VM.Console -- /usr/bin/dtach -A /var/run/dtach/vzctlconsole100 -r winch -z lxc-console -n 100 -e -1' failed: exit code 4
You can't use ssh here but the problem here is different:

If I switch to ssh and try to log in as root, it won't use the password I set in the template. I have tried it 3 times. I did not mistype it.

Can anyone help me?

Hi,

Do you have a firewall active?
Because you must allow port 5900:5999 for these connections if you outside the localnet.
