I am trying to telnet into my esx v3 infrastructure. I am able to connect to the host server through Absolute Telnet using SSH2 but when I try to authenticate I am unable to get in. Authentication is correct becuause I can login at the machine.
I am trying to clean up the file directory. Anyone with advise?

By default root ssh access is disabled.

You'll have to modify /etc/ssh/sshd_config to allow "PermitRootLogin yes" instead of "PermitRootLogin no"

Restart ssh. "/etc/init.d/sshd restart" or "service sshd restart"

Thanks. Follow up questions: How can I also enable the ftp server so I can manage files on the linux box easier?

No problem!

What do you have your security settings set to in the Management User Interface (MUI)?  Also, I would use SFTP instead of FTP.  I regularly use WinSCP.  Give this a shot:
