NoMachine NX Client for Windows Displays "Connection Error" when logging in


I am using NX Client on Windows 7. NoMachine has been working for me for quite some time now. Today, I lost connection and have not been able to reconnect. I keep getting the following connection error:

NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 8176
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
NX> 285 Setting the preferred NX options
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out

I've rebooted my server; I've reset my router; nothing seems to work. Can you please help?

Thank you,

Are you able to telnet to your servers IP on port 22? Looks like your connection is timing out on the SSH connect. That would be my first trouble shooting step

telnet 22
ctrl+] to escape out of telnet if you need to

Also take a look at the log files on the server to see if there is anything reporting, your /var/log/messages is a good place to start.
