So my laptop SSD died last week, and I needed to reinstall OSX on a new drive. On my old drive I had ssh key setup to ssh into my PGBlitz OneProvider server. Now trying to SSH into my server, I forgot the username I had, and my IP got banned by Fail2Ban, and cant access my server. I have been trying on different IP's to log in but only get 3 chances before I get ban. I forgot how many days I ban the IP's, but my home IP has been banned since Friday and I still can't use it again. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get in some way to at least look at the /home directory to find what user name I was using? There is no way to use the console from a docker to get into the server file system that I am not aware of is there? I really do not want to have to rebuild my server just because I cant remember a user name. Thanks in advance.
