SSH not working on fresh CentOS7 box

1,058 Views
Last Modified: 2014-08-15
Per below, SSH connections on port 22 are refused.  The box is running on my LAN at 192.168.0.105.  What am I missing?  

I've turned off all firewalls (firewalld, iptables), confirmed sshd is running, confirmed port 22 is listening (this is a brand new fresh install of CentOS7.  No changes to any config files.)steps
