In another blog post I wrote how you can enable SSH on a VMware ESXi 6.0 host directly on the host it self. In this blog post I show you how you can enable SSH on your VMware ESXi 6.0 host via the VMware vSphere Client.
Open the VMware vSphere client and connected to your ESXi server and open the Configurations tab.
On the Configurations tab choose Security Profile.
Open the Properties tab so you cen see the Security Profile properties and the Remote Access services. Here you can enable the SSH Server on the VMware ESXi host.
If you have some issues check the firewall settings on your VMware ESXi host.
