    Hi guys,
    I am a total amateur with regards to server configuration and command line operations, but I am slowly getting there.

    I'm having some tricksy problems with SSH/sshd right now and I'm at a loss.

    I've searched the forums here and tried a few things as detailed below. If anybody has anything else I could try I'd be eternally grateful.

    I could login fine last month, now PuTTY responds with:
    I tried to restart the service and got this response:
    I know I didn't change the port from the default of 22, so I removed my keys and re-enabled password auth to keep things simple. I also attempted the autofix method:
    The script executed fine, this is the output:
    Unfortunately I still cannot connect via SSH.

    I asked support on our hosting platform who responded that the config looked fine and to keep looking for a solution (thanks a bunch!).

    Hello :)

    Do you have any firewall applications on your own computer that could restricting your access to SSH? For instance, are you able to connect to any other servers via SSH over port 22?

    Or, have you installed a firewall on your server? If so, have you tried disabling it temporarily to rule it out as the cause of the problem?

    Thank you.

    OMG, my Host Access Control list was in the wrong £^%$&* order. Thanks Michael that jogged the old noodle.
