SSH Service is disabled

To check the status of the ssh server, type sudo service ssh status into your console (in your case the KVM).

If an ssh server is not installed, type sudo apt-get install openssh-server if you use ubuntu to install an ssh server.

Another issue could be that you have just enabled ufw ( This can block ssh connections. You can allow ssh connections by typing this: `sudo ufw allow ssh, so long as the ssh server is running on the default port (correct me if I'm wrong).

You should use the KVM to access the VPS and see why SSH is not running on your VPS.

What OS are you running? In the KVM console try "service sshd start".

I cannot SSH into my VPS. The KVM via control panel seems to work though.
I have tried rebooting the server and this issue remains unresolved. No reply from support in over 24 hours.
