ssh is dead

Hi All,

I am running Redhat 7.3 with the latest ssh packages installed. My server is connected via ethernet (no monitor, keyboard, or mouse) and I was able to ssh in without any problems until all of a sudden I get "connection refused" errors. No files were changed and everything else works great (ftp, www, samba). My question is how can I get back into the system. I'd hate to just hit the reset switch. Any ideas? Thanks.

Well, you never really want to hit the reset switch without a proper shutdown and reboot. Especially when you have other services working just fine. Your best option is to get physical access to the system unless you have telnet up and running on it or some other valid shell access to determine what is wrong with your machine.
