Long time Mac user; newb at this forum, though. Here's my predicament and Google hasn't turned up anything I understand: - I've got a MBP running latest Leopard - My wife has a MB running the same - I pay for a web-server with SSH access - I have a standard internet connection at home - I have a standard internet connection at my office I've been able to connect to the webserver, via SSH, for the longest time from my own MBP. All of a sudden, and I can't pin-point exactly when, my MBP gets the following message when I type "ssh email@example.com" in Terminal.app: ssh: connect to host mydomain.com port 22: Connection refused So, it's not my credentials, but access altogether, it seems. "Okay, so my webhost closed SSH access, I'll give them a call." Nope, they say it isn't closed and that they can connect just fine. I send an instant message to a friend, ask him to type in "ssh firstname.lastname@example.org" in his instance of Terminal.app, and he gets through just fine, and is asked for the password. "Okay, so it's my network here in the office." So, I take my MBP home and try it from there. Same issue. I walk five feet over to my wife's MB, and it works perfectly: I am asked to enter my password. So, I go through my system preferences, note the firewall preference, which is set to "Allow all incoming connections," and I am baffled. Any ideas why only my Mac won't connect via port 22, and what else I should inspect? Thanks, all.
