Try this for your ssh issue, make sure your user has permission to use it.

Subject: VMware ESXi 4.1
Has anyone used the free version of VMware ESXi 4.1?
I started playing with it to possibly use with our VCL after it's been upgraded
to 2.2.1, however I can't figure out how to get both our public and private
networks defined on it. After initial install on a blade, it configures the
public interface and I'm able to connect to it via the vSphere client. But
everytime I try to add the private network to it, it configures a virtual mac
address rather than using the mac address of the physical interface like it's
doing for the public interface.
The result is this interface is getting a 169.254.0.1 IP address, rather than
the IP it should get from the DHCP server. I also enabled SSH on the security
profile, however it's not answering SSH connection attempts.
Just wondering if anyone has had some experience with setting this up.
