exceed ssh connection stopped working

Hello,
I currently have an exceed ssh connection to my Solaris 10 Unx server which was work last Friday but this morning it has stopped working with the following message: Unable to connect to host using specified start method.

I have other servers which i can connect to with ssh and these servers are on the same network as the one that has stopped working. I haven't changed my user password on the non working server as i can still su to my user name and that works. I have also gone into the ssh tunnel for the non workign server, deleted it and re-created it and still the connection dosen't work. I have checked and port 22 is still open.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

if you can login to the server via the console (or for a short period of time enable telnet / rlogin) stop the sshd service in solaris and restart it in debug mode
sshd -d
then when you try and connect you will get the detail debug messages
you can increase the level of debugging with
sshd -d -d
each time you connect, you will have to re-run sshd as in debug mode it is not daemonized

You can also run an ssh client in verbose mode, I'm not sure about how in eXceed, but from a standard ssh client it's
ssh -v -v <server-name>

If i don't use ssh within my xstart then i can connect to the server no problems. I did also enable detail and verbose logging within the ssh tunnel but that didn't produce anyting that could tell me what was wrong.
It does seem like it could be a problem with the server i.e. ssh nto running as i installed ssh v9.0 on a colleague xstart and they couldn't log on with their username ?

can you try logging into the server with another ssh client (something like putty - http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html)

I have also tried puTTY and can log in with rlogin but when i use ssh i get no connection. So it would seem like the issue is on the unix server ?
