Login Using an SSH Password

By default, SSH login to Linux BMSs using the password is disabled. If you want to use this function, log in to the BMS (see section Login Using an SSH Key) and enable the function. For details, see section How Should I Set SSH Configuration Items?.

Prerequisites

  • An EIP has been bound to the BMS.
  • You have configured the inbound rules of the security group. For details, see Configuring the Security Group.
  • The network connection between the login tool (such as PuTTY) and the target BMS is normal. For example, the default port 22 is not blocked by the firewall.
  • SSH login to BMSs using the password is enabled.
