Unable to access proxmox host


Oct 16, 2018
I have proxmox installed on a system that until today was working fine, I have now lost access to the system.

The machine has a static ip of, ping times out for this address and I can't access the web gui either. I now the system is running as I can access the VM i use as a webserver although I can't log in with SSH at the moment.

Any suggestions as to what I have done or how to resolve the connection issue?
Do you checked the system with local keyboard and monitor?
All sorted.

Somehow the firewall was on, connected local keyboard & monitor and was able to switch it off.
