can't ssh into my own slackware 9.1 box, please help

Hello all,

I just installed slackware 9.1 and did all of the updates. I can't seem to ssh into it though- i get
a connection time out message. i've tried stopping and restarting sshd, with no luck. I am able to access the internet np and I can ssh into other servers, but have no access to mine. Can anyone give me a suggestion on how to fix this, or where to begin to look?


plan9 (as in the movie, not the os!)

Do you have a firewall configured? Your symptoms sound suspiciously like the firewall is dropping incoming ssh packets. Try doing an iptables -L on the Slackware box and see if those packets are being filtered.
