ssh login denied - July 21

Godaddy, et. al.

 

   For approx 24 hours I have not been able to login to my unix account.

Here is the error:    ssh: connect to host ophirprison.com port 22: Connection refused

 

  Two possible causes are:

   ssh daemon is not running

   new firewall rule

  

   To test you can use: ssh ophirprison.com  (or similar)

 

I have tried to ssh from 3 different computers/domains, so this looks like

a GoDaddy error/problem rather than a ISP or PEBCAK.  I assume that GoDaddy

will fix this "magically" in time, as they have with other unix configuration problems (in the past)

 

   (Please do not reply with any tips on logging in using ssh, I have been

using unix/ssh for decades so this is not PEBCAK)

Re: ssh login denied - July 21

ssh login now works July 23.

 

After contacting GoDaddy, they indicated that the problem was theirs to fix.

After approx 90 minutes going through many levels of support, we were told

that they would fix it.  It would be great if GoDaddy could change their

help script to reduce the time down to 10 minutes or less, always room

for improvement and we value their time, be great if they valued our time just

a little bit more.  Just sayin'.
