Fedora Servers :: SSH Server Has Gone All Pear-shaped (connection Refused)?
Feb 18, 2011
I am experiencing a bit of a problem with openssh-server. I installed the server like I normally do. It wouldn't work, so I tried using this. It still didn't work. Later, I have realised that when using service sshd start SSH says it started, but when you check if it's running with service sshd status it says it doesn'triend advised me to use /etc/init.d/sshd and I managed to get it started. However, that doesn't return anything, and when I try to connect it says connection refused even when I try to connect from localhost to localhost
I have FileZilla installed on this machine, and OpenSSH (with an open port 22) on another machine on my home network. When I try and connect, I get: Quote: Status:Connecting to 192.168.2.3... Response:fzSftp started Command: open "firstname.lastname@example.org" 22 Error:Connection refused Error:Could not connect to server
Which has left me puzzled as I have an open port. Does the username have to be defined somewhere? E.g. the machine acting as my SFTP server can be logged on to locally as alphatwo so that's what I logged in as (with the correct password). Is this correct? If so, does anyone have any ideas as to how I might rectify it? I want SFTP set up so I can copy PHP files from my laptop to /var/www/html/ on another PC (across the home network).
I was trying to install PEAR on a remote Ubuntu server using putty. I ran an apt-get install php-pear command and everything went smoothly, but now i cannot access the website as it says 'can't establish a connection to the server' and in firebug, it shows the status 'aborted'. I even tried adding the pear path in php.ini file and restarting the apache server but no luck.
I am merely trying to change the port for my ssh server.However it isn't changing.I edited my ssh_config file to:
# This is the ssh client system-wide configuration file. See # ssh_config(5) for more information. This file provides defaults for[code]...
When i try to connect to my server via port 443 i get a connection refused error. However when i try to connect via port 22 it connects. Since that didn't work, i tried restarting the entire server.To restate, i changed the config file and restarted ssh then the computer, however the port didn't change.Ohh and yes my router is set to port forwarding on port 443, though it doesn't matter since I'm inside the network.
I have a box running Fedora 14 upstairs and I've been trying to get it to run VNC server, unsuccessfully. I've RTFM, and followed the instructions step-by-step, but it still won't run. I'm getting no error messages. But when I try to connect from either a Window or Mac client, it either get a timeout or connection refused. I've read and tried all the troubleshooting; been working on this for about 12 hours now. Is there something major that I could be overlooking?
I am trying to setup APC on my Fedora 7 server but cant install php-pear. There are loads of sites explaining how to do this but they all use "yum install php-pear" which yum cant seem to find??
root@fedora7 [/etc/apt]# yum install php-pear Loading "fastestmirror" plugin Repository base is listed more than once in the configuration Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: p3mirror01.prod.phx3.secureserver.net code....
I have a new Ubuntu server (10.10), named Denholm, recently installed and updated. I came in this morning, attempted to add a package with apt-get, and got a "Connection refused" response. I have another server (also 10.10), named Moss, on the same network that can connect successfully.
Here's what I've found/tried so far:
This doesn't look like and apt problem anyway, but the sources.list files on Denholm and Moss are identical.
I can ping [URL] (and other sites) successfully from Denholm.
I have tried 'wget www.google.com'. From Moss the wget is successful, but from Denholm I get "Connection refused."
I have a web server on Moss and Denholm can successfully access it.
To the best of my knowledge, Denholm is not configured to use a proxy server (no http_proxy variable set).
I have sendmail running (quite well) on my ubuntu box. It worksfine with Thunderbird locally. It runs fine with a few other MUAson (allowed) remote machines. It has one small problem I have notbeen able to clear up: it will not send mail that is initiated bythe 'mail' program locally. It gives me a "[127.0.0.1 connectionrefused] error in the logs. The /etc/hosts file is fine (as faras I know). The sendmail.cf file has been rebuilt from sendmeil.mc.'hostname' and 'dnsdomainname' return proper values. Okay, I'mstumped and looking for another set of eyes on the problem.
I have a Rackspace server running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, where I have installed an IRCd-Hybrid. I can connect to the IRC server using irssi that was installed on the same machine where the server is, but when I try to access it from my computer at home or my friends try I get this error:
I downloaded the ubuntu server (command line only) iso and set up a server on a spare computer. The only partition is ubuntu. LAMP server installed, and runs. Its plugged into my home network and the router assigns it a DMZ. I use ptty and that allows me to connect the server from my Windows PC. I installed samba and that works, I set up the server as Z: to my windows PC, and I can now use Filezilla FTP to move gigs of files over from my windows PC to the ubuntu server. I have to log in to activate the connection to Z: but it works.
Problem is getting a database connection from my windows PC (client) to my ubuntu server. Server is running a MySQL server and an Apache Derby server but both give connection:refused every time I try to connect with a java app, or with ij from my client. I tried MySQL Workbench, as that has a GUI, that doesnt connect to MySQL either. Every time I start my server I have to add lots of jar files to the CLASSPATH just to get the Derby server running. The Derby client connection on my client PC is also properly set up with PATH and CLASSPATH etc etc all configured and tested. But the server refuses every attempt to connect even though it tells you the Derby server is up and runnign as listening on port 1527!!!
What I want is a script or app that will "unlock" my server so I can actually do something with it instead of constantly trying new settings and packages in the vain hope it will then actually 'serve'. I am missing something here. There is nothing of value on this server that cannot be 'exposed' to the internet, so I'd be happy to turn off all the security just so the damn thing allowed connections...!
i administer an isp mail server on centOS my client has a mail server on redhat, the client can send mail successfully but if i try to send mail from outside i get "connection refused error" from my /var/log/maillog can anyone help this has been pending for long and im under fire!!
I'm testing my mail server, and sending email works fine. However, when I tried to send emails to my server from gmail, I get this log:
Code: Aug 8 14:18:17 anbient postfix/smtpd: warning: database /etc/postfix/virtual.db is older than source file /etc/postfix/virtual Aug 8 14:18:17 anbient postfix/smtpd: connect from mail-qy0-f169.google.com[18.104.22.168] Aug 8 14:18:17 anbient postfix/smtpd: F3D4B1DD02C0: client=mail-qy0-f169.google.com[22.214.171.124] Aug 8 14:18:18 anbient postfix/cleanup: F3D4B1DD02C0: message-id=<4C5EBC96.email@example.com> Aug 8 14:18:18 anbient postfix/qmgr: F3D4B1DD02C0: from=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, size=1982, nrcpt=1 (queue active) Aug 8 14:18:18 anbient postfix/smtp: connect to net[126.96.36.199]:25: Connection refused Aug 8 14:18:18 anbient postfix/smtp: F3D4B1DD02C0: to=<fidelix@net>, orig_to=<email@example.com>, relay=none, delay=0.15, delays=0.09/0/0.05/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to net[188.8.131.52]:25: Connection refused)
And this is strange. 184.108.40.206 seems to be the web address 'net.net'. I am sure this has to be some setting in postfix, cuz its trying to deliver the email to 'fidelix@net', and that cant be right.
Here is my postconf -n output: Code: root@anbient:/var/mail# postconf -n alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases append_dot_mydomain = no biff = no broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes config_directory = /etc/postfix home_mailbox = Maildir/ .....

I have configured openssh 5.8p2 with centos 5.6. My sftp is working fine with chroot environment but i am having problem with SCP. I am dealing with muliti Redhat servers. When i try to transfer data from other linux server through scp it gives connection refused. For e.g ssh 5.8 is configured on new server and i want to transfer files from old server which is using openssh 4.3 version.i created same username and password on new server as on old server.My sftp users on new server has no shell access but only sftp access. When i try to scp from old server to new server it gives error connection refused. Is the below configuration only for sftp and can't scp? According to google the configurations i found are for scp and sftp. Do i need to generate ssh keys by giving users on new server shell access, once created then stop shell access again, as i dont want to give shell access permanent for security reasons? but i want to use ssh keys for more security as well.
Port 22 PermitRootLogin no 1.override default of no subsystems[code].....
I am using redhat on server and open suse on client. When I want to ssh from my server machine the following error occur "connection refuse".

I have just built a new postifx open relay server to allow my ISP clients to send emails. During testing of the SMPT protocol, I can managed to send emails to my localhost however, I can't send emails to other external mail server. Below is a test to a yahoo account. Aug 7 15:03:55 mx2 postfix/smtp: connect to g.mx.mail.yahoo.com[220.127.116.11]: Connection refused (port 25) Aug 7 15:03:55 mx2 postfix/smtp: F084EC8D76: to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, relay=none, delay=8.5, delays=1.2/0.05/7.3/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to g.mx.mail.yahoo.com[18.104.22.168]: Connection refused)

I have a Rackspace server running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, where I have installed an IRCd-Hybrid. I can connect to the IRC server using irssi that was installed on the same machine where the server is, but when I try to access it from my computer at home or my friends try I get this error: Code: Connection Refused What should I do?
I have configured a Nagios server which is working well with all king of clients. But when I added a new windows machine to monitor, it gives a error message "connection refused". I have set everything as prior machines.
Now, I just wanted to know the process by which we can check if server is able to communicate with the client's NSclient daemon. In Linux, we simply issue "./check_nrpe -H hostname" and if ok, it gives the NRPE version which indicates the status ok.
When I was checking the /var/log/messages, I found these entries:
Mar 16 15:14:38 localhost smbd: [2010/03/16 15:14:38, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_connect(78) Mar 16 15:14:38 localhost smbd: Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost:631 - Connection refused Mar 16 15:24:38 localhost smbd: [2010/03/16 15:24:38, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_connect(78) Mar 16 15:24:38 localhost smbd: Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost:631 - Connection refused Mar 16 15:24:38 localhost smbd: [2010/03/16 15:24:38, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_connect(78) Mar 16 15:24:38 localhost smbd: Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost:631 - Connection refused Mar 16 15:27:34 localhost smbd: [2010/03/16 15:27:34, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_connect(78) Mar 16 15:27:34 localhost smbd: Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost:631 - Connection refused Mar 16 15:27:34 localhost smbd: [2010/03/16 15:27:34, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_connect(78) Mar 16 15:27:34 localhost smbd: Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost:631 - Connection refused
CUPS is stopped in the system and the system is configured as samba server. What could be the reason for these printing requests from smbd?
Im having some problem with my DNS. We are using a Linux web server as one of our web server which runs some live websites.When I trying to get the status of the DNS (NAMED) it comes the following error :
The same error appears when Im trying to apply any changes on zone level for a selected doamin in WEBMIN. (Basically can't apply changes)
WEBMIN > Servers > BIND DNS servers > click a selected-domain.co.uk > Apply changes
But the server seems to be running without effecting any probelms to the sites or users. I have been searching weeks for this problem & couldn't find a solution. And also Please note that Im bit new to Linux.
