Re: Help -- can't SSH into my box

Well, for some strange reason, since installing Fedora 10, I can no longer SSH into my box. I've got SSHD running, both on the standard port and on a non-standard port. I don't even get a username/password prompt. Just a timeout error. Funny thing is I can SCP into the box all day long, I just can't SSH into it.

Some things I've tried (in this order):
0) Put an exception for SSH and non-standard port in the firewall rules.
1) Disabled firewall entirely.
2) rebooted my router
3) Disabled Fail2Ban
4) Restarted networking

Any ideas? I'd really like to be able to connect to my box.

I'm curious to know what, if anything, appears in /var/log/messages and /var/log/secure when you attempt to ssh in, as well as what appears when you successfully scp in.

Also, the fact that you're running sshd on a non-standard port implies that you've edited /etc/ssh/sshd_config. Could you try the default sshd_config, just for comparison? It's entirely possible that you're doing something that should be valid, but that some other security policy (PAM, SELinux, etc.) doesn't correctly handle in the default configuration.
