Lost SSH Ability on Pogoplug v4

Alright, I followed this tutorial To install linux on my Pogoplug v4 but when I restarted it just blinked green forever and nothing happened. I figured the OS did not install onto the flash drive and I was correct. I followed these instructions and formatted the drive, got the correct Debian linux distro and put it on there, then put the drive back into the Pogoplug.

Success! Green light turned steady and the flash drive light flashed. After a few seconds it settled down but occasionally will access the flash drive (indicated by blinking USB light). Only problem is I cannot SSH into the pogoplug anymore. It has an IP address from the router. The router says its attached. But, when I use Putty to SSH into that address I get “Connection refused”

I know this is simple but I am very new to linux.

Thank you

Could I take the flash drive and attach it to another linux box and then change the files that need to be changed, then plug it back in? Which files would need to be altered?
