Post SSH/SSHD not working on Suse 11 Patch level 1

Dear All,

When trying to connect with putty , we get

Network error , connection refused.

Anyone knows how to solve this issue. As this is my Production server, what precautions I should take.

Connection refused means it seemed to reach a port that was not listening.

Perhaps the SSH server sshd is not listening on the interface you think it is.
Perhaps you connected to a different interface from what you wanted.
Perhaps there is a firewall interfering and causing your traffic to get "reset".

Start by confirming ( netstat -an | grep LISTEN ) that the service is running on your server.
