This leads me to suspect that you don't understand what rescue mode does.

You should boot the computer that failed from the rescue cd.  After it's
booted, you can use the keyboard that's attached to that computer to "do
things", be that copy data off of of the hard drive or run fsck or whatever you
need to do.

sshd is not started by default when booting in rescue mode, so you won't be
able to log into that machine remotely unless you take additional steps (that
also involve typing on the keyboard that's attached to the computer you just
booted in rescue mode) after booting it up.
