fedora 20

When i tried to configure my newly created virtual machine, when i tried to ssh to her, my connection are dropped.
But why?…

Let’s try to solve this situation:

I try to connect to localhost:

[root@forum ~]# ssh -vvv localhost
OpenSSH_6.4, OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 51: Applying options for *
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to localhost [] port 22.
debug1: connect to address port 22: Connection refused
ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection refused

Dead…? Let’s try to run it again?

[root@forum ~]# chkconfig sshd on
Uwaga: przekazano żądanie do "systemctl enable sshd.service".
ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/sshd.service' '/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/sshd.service'
[root@forum ~]# service sshd start 
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start sshd.service

Still dead?

[root@forum ~]# systemctl enable sshd.service
[root@forum ~]# systemctl start sshd.service
[root@forum ~]# systemctl status sshd.service

[root@forum ~]#

Finally, it’s available…


Check also:

  • firewall settings
  • /etc/ssh/sshd_config – is “PermitRootLogin yes” set to allow root login?
