I see that out of the box the Application Connector does not enable SSH. How does everyone deal with this? Do you enable SSH or do you just use the VMWare Console, or do you find that you just don’t spend enough time on the CLI to worry about it
You have a choice to either use the local terminal (via the Hypervisor) or you can enable SSH from the CLI (How to Enable, Install, & Configure SSH on CentOS 7 | PhoenixNAP KB). Really is up to you.
Of course by having SSH enabled means you will have an open listener on your connector. So do keep that in mind, as you move forward.
