Proxmox Virtual console application

Oct 4, 2019
Is there any application/package you can install into a container or VM to make the virtual/remote console work just like it does when interacting with the virtual console of the server itself?
I know how to set up a virtual RS232/serial port on a VM/container and use xterm.js, but that terminal is so limited resolution- and row-wise compared to the virtual shell in xterm.js when interacting with the server itself....
I don't want to engage in the security risk/hassle it means to setup SSH-servers on all my VMs/containers if the distribution cannot be done through the Proxmox console.
