Either you can or you cant.... Which is it?

Unless you have configured a host in ~/.ssh/config, you are not trying to connect with keys.

On the server, run:
tcpdump -i eth0 src x.x.x.x and tcp port 22 -nn
(replace eth0 with the relevant interface, and x.x.x.x with your clients IP)
And try to connect to it with ssh on the client..

This will show if the ssh connection packets are even getting to the server..

You need to ignore rsh, ssh keys, authorized keys, etc. until you're first able to log into the machine with a password. Ignore all of the keygen stuff until you have it working. If you can't even log in with a password, you're just going to complicate things trying to add passwordless/passphraseless login via rsh keys and authorizedkeys.

Remove your authorizedkeys file, remove your rsh id, etc., and go back to the basics until you have things working.

In your screenshot you're trying to connect to blr-ws-151, not the IP. Is this hostname in your /etc/hosts file? What do you see in the server log files when you try to connect? Can you ssh the other direction (server to client)?
