Unable to login via SSH internally

  • Hi,
    I am completely new to pfSense. Just installed ver 1.2.3. Although I allowed SSH via GUI interface under Advanced Functions but still no luck. I am trying to login from LAN. Installation went without any issues on older Dell.

    Thanks in advance.

  • What is the problem? Are you getting an error, is it timing out,…? Can you ping the LAN IP of the pfSense host?

  • Tried this morning and got in. Looks like it was a bad password. One thing I know for sure (may be) I was using the same one as for GUI. Go figure :-. Thanks anyways.
    I was getting this error - sshd[29368]: error: PAM: authentication error for admin from xxx.xxx
