I’m trying to copy a disk image over ssh to my local machine using this tutorial on linodes website.
I know this could be posted on their support forum, but im convinced its in the general realm of *unix knowledge.
I’ve followed all the steps and I can get int Finnix (custom editor), checked the disk images and now I want to download it via SSH to my local machine. I keep getting:
I can already ssh into the remote server, its when im in Finnix.
ssh root@xxxxxxxxx port 22: connection refused
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "dd if=/dev/xvdb " | dd of=/home/linode.img
So I’ve re-written the firewall rules, checked for memory leaks, reset root password, logged in via the ajax console on their site, pings, disk space and still no luck.
Any suggestions on why this is?
