SSH failing and Telnet disabled

Hi Guys,

Does anybody have any idea what to do about this?

I cannot access SSH. It keeps failing and even attempting to restart it in WHM fails. Telnet has been disabled so that is not an option.

Do not get panic..i will give u a fix for this..

1) login to your WHM

2) Go to the Software Section

3) Then go to The section "Install and RPM"

4)Then try reinstalling SSH packages forcefully

5) Now all your issues are solved :-D and try loggin into the server through SSH

Enjoy :-D

What error did you get on restarting SSH? Your next alternative really is to get the data center to fix it as it's hard to fix a problem when you can't even log in

It's telling me: Network Error, Connection Timed Out. I get the same message in Putty AND in WinSCP3. In WHM when I attemt to restart the service, I get this error:

Oct 3 02:17:08 elements sshd: sshd -TERM succeeded Oct 3 02:17:08 elements sshd: succeeded sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

I guess I have no choice but to contact the DC.
