Can't SSH into my server, could earlier today and nothing was changed. How can I fix this, has anyone experienced this?

--- Restarting SSH from WHM didn't work, said it started ok. WHen I try to SSH in, I don't get anything.

Contact your provider and have them do a manual reboot. Should bring things back up for you.

Actually this is my server, rebooted plenty of times. I solved the problem. Although Zone Alarm wasn't running it was still blocking Putty from accessing the server. Uninstalled ZoneAlarm, rebooted my machine and everything is fine.

Thanks to Dave from Cpanel for trying to login via his machine. Once he tried and succeeded, I knew the problem was on this machine. Solved. ZoneAlarm is evil :D IMHO

Why didn't you just grant access for Putty within ZoneAlarm? If it worked before (presuming you had both programs installed, and then stopped, it can only be presumed that ZoneAlarm settings were changed or not setup correctly -- for Putty.

One 'never' wants to be accessing the Internet without a Firewall.
