I belive u have to have to turn on the service, the same happened to me when i reinstalled redhat 9.

The way you turn it on is on your main menu
System settings -> Service settings -> Services. Once u are in there make sure u check the check box "sshd" and then click on start and save the changes.

U need root access to do this.

Hope this helps

If it's simply a matter of the service being disabled, in the console you can simply do "/etc/init.d/sshd start", of course that won't enable it upon boot, for which the prior poster had graphical instructions. To this on the console as well, do "chkconfig sshd on". For more information, refer to "man chkconfig"

Check if the service is running, by portscanning the server:
# nmap <server>
If it's running and you *still* can't log in, then it'll be your server setup - check things like who's allowed to login [eg root shouldn't be allowed to login by default on some packages].
