I've recently installed Proxmox 6 and currently unable to access the shell, I can access it using putt though.

This is the error I'm getting
Code:
timed out waiting for client
TASK ERROR: command '/usr/bin/termproxy 5900 --path /nodes/discovery --perm Sys.Console -- /bin/login -f root' failed: exit code 4

I've tried all 3 shell options but get the same error with all of them, checked the firewall at datacenter and node lever and both are switched off. I did change the node name after install so not sure if that's caused the issue

Host file
Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.29 discovery.local discovery pvelocalhost

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts

::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
Hostname file
Code:
discovery

Issue resolved, ran apt-get dist-upgrade using putty and shell access is now working.
