Figured it out. I was using the wrong IP to connect. I needed to do
lxc-ls -f to find the correct IP.
I am trying to ssh connect locally.
I want ssh because lsyncd needs it for sharing.
gives permission denied. That is the ip that shows on my host for the container when I did ifconfig.
I already added PermitRootLogin to Yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and it made no difference.
What can be causing this permission denied? I turned off firewall in the server and no change.
