ssh/scp connection refused


I am logged in from my desktop (Fedora 12) to a server (Fedora 10) and I want to copy something from this server to my desktop using scp...
Had no problem in the past, but now I get :
Code:
[root@server 123456]# scp -vv recording.wav Jonas@192.168.1.21:/home/jonas/Desktop
Executing: program /usr/bin/ssh host 192.168.1.21, user Jonas, command scp -v -t /home/jonas/Desktop
OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to 192.168.1.21 [192.168.1.21] port 22.
debug1: connect to address 192.168.1.21 port 22: Connection refused
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.21 port 22: Connection refused
lost connection
I am clearly logged in to the server:
Code:
[root@server 123456]# w
 17:48:15 up 41 days,  2:43,  2 users,  load average: 0.02, 0.01, 0.00
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHAT
root     pts/0    192.168.1.21     17:45    1.00s  0.19s  0.04s w
I have cleared all entries from ~/.ssh/known_hosts

The firewall on my desktop is disabled :
Code:
[root@jonas jonas]# /sbin/service iptables status
Table: filter
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
num  target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
num  target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
num  target     prot opt source               destination
I don't know what to do...

Just to clarify, you are logging in to the server and then running the scp command to copy stuff back to the desktop, correct? The desktop (ip: 192.168.1.21) may not have the ssh service enabled, and you may not be able to use scp from the server to the desktop. How do you login to the server; do you use ssh? Then in that case you should run the scp command from the desktop to fetch the file(s) from the server.

HTH.

I don't know what to do...

Check whether the sshd is running on your desktop, maybe?
Or, as rn suggested, just
scp jonas@server:/path/to/recording.wav .
from your desktop ... no point in having to ssh in to just
ssh back to the same location.

On jonas check that you have the correct file permissions on .ssh and any files in .ssh.

@ RN : yes, I ssh into the server and then scp back to my desktop

@ Tinkster : indeed on my desktop the sshd proces was not running... I updated from Fedora 10 to Fedora 12 and apparently the sshd proces is not in the chkconfig-list.

The problem was very stupid, but I just looked too far for the solution...
