Question SSH - Refused Connections


I am trying to setup SSHD on my system. I am running RH 7.1. If I try to ssh locally, everything works fine. If I try to ssh into my machine from a remote location, it does not connect and shows "sshd: connection refused from X.X.X.X" in my logs. My firewall is set to allow traffic in on Port 22 and all port scans to my system show that it is open. I am also using xinetd. I was familiar with inet and knew how to get it up and running with that but now I am clueless. From what I can tell, and from what I have found, xinetd does not control ssh. Anyone got any pointers for ssh? (and xinetd if it is used with ssh?)

SSH does not use xinet.d
Look for adding AllowedHosts to you /etc/sshd/sshd_config file
Also make sure you are in the /etc/hosts.allowed file

Fixed it!

I did start the sshd service, mcleodnine. I made sure it was running properly by connecting to it locally from one of the machines on my network. It turned out to be the hosts.allow file. I added the settings I wanted for sshd and it ran perfectly after that.

At least I know my computer is smart enough to keep hackers like me out of it...

It didn't

I was not stopping me after I did that. I just was not quick enough to pick up on it...

When I debug with sshd -d I have this:

debug1: Seeding random number generator
debug1: sshd version OpenSSH_2.5.2p2
debug1: load_private_key_autodetect: type 0 RSA1
debug1: read SSH2 private key done: name rsa w/o comment success 1
debug1: load_private_key_autodetect: type 1 RSA
debug1: read SSH2 private key done: name dsa w/o comment success 1
debug1: load_private_key_autodetect: type 2 DSA
debug1: Bind to port 22 on 0.0.0.0.
Bind to port 22 on 0.0.0.0 failed: Address already in use.
Cannot bind any address.

I setup RedHat 7.1 and installed ssh server with the kpackage. So paths and all that may different from download tar.gz.
tcpwrapper, I believe, is blocking me.
Any advice to troubleshoot it?

Thanks
