comment IP address blacklisted in my CentOS server
Don't tell us. Show us. Show us a working ssh-as-root session from one IP address, then the non-working one from another. Use the -v flag, possibly more than once. This question is accumulating close votes quite quickly, so you don't have long to demonstrate that you have a real, on-topic question here.

We cannot begin to help unless you give us much more detail. At least show us your failure to connect to the server.

comment Is there a downside to installing VNC?
"OP has determined that SSH is secure enough". Security isn't a property that you have or don't; it's a degree of preparedness against a given threat model. If the threat model is "unauthorised access by remote user", then yes, ssh is good defence. If the threat model is "privilege escalation by authorised local user", then ssh is no defence, and installing tons of extra code on the server increases the attack surface significantly. Womble is an experienced sysadmin with about seventy thousand times your reputation on this site, so you might want to go easy on the insults.

comment Is there a downside to installing VNC?
I agree that security is a balancing act, but claiming that acts (installing extra software) that are part of the trade-off have no downside is disingenuous. Saying there are few ssh'ed in users is equally misleading: the question's author says he ssh'es in right now, and we have no way of knowing how many others do so.

comment Is there a downside to installing VNC?
"You don't add any security issues you didn't already have before" isn't even close to true. Installing extra code - and Andre B above gives you some idea how much extra code we're talking about - gives more opportunities for privilege escalation by (ssh'ed-in) local users.
