i was using ssh fine a few weeks ago but yesterday i tried to connect to my machine via ssh and it says "connection refused." So on the server i noticed that sshd is not showing up when i do a "ps ax". I try to start it manually with /usr/sbin/sshd and nothing happens, still can't connect.
Then i tried debug mode, "/usr/sbin/sshd -d" and everything works fine. i can connect for one session sshd closes.
I suspect it's something to do with the way sshd gets forked. not sure.
rc.sshd is already enabled. i get the same results with the start up script as calling it manually. it does not get started. if i try ./rc.sshd stop or restart after a "start" it still reports no process killed.
well i fixed the problem by doing a "system restore" -reinstalled all the packages that came on the cd. This happened probably because i deleted the wrong things. Everything is fine, my system configurations are still there.
