SSH times out before making connection
Posted on 2008-06-18
I am trying to SSH into a new Cent OS 5 server from my home office, and the connection times out before completing.
I have done the following:
* Assigned the server an IP on the block where it sits
* Made sure that /etc/resolv.conf points to valid DNS servers
* Assigned the firewall to allow SSH on this IP (port 22)
I can remotely SSH into other servers in the block, and then SSH to this one.
But if I attempt to remotely SSH directly to this server, I get
"ssh: connect to host XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX port 22: Operation timed out
/var/log/secure has no indication it ever SAW the connection attempt.
