Hi all

Was actually trying to connect to an esxi 6.5 host via winscp. I like the idea of backing up the VMs to external air-gaped backup for the VMs

I have done this in several other installs but not sure what I could be missing here - I can't get it to connect to either one of the two hosts?

I can access each host from the same computer via browser, I enabled ssh.

Thoughts ideas as to what I may be missing and cannot connect?

Keeps looking for host an times out with.

I disabled Win 10 firewall as well for testing

Thanks guys!!!
