I rebooted my Linux Mint 17.3 machine and now when I try to ssh to it, I get "Connection refused" -- what did go wrong? Here are my diagnostic steps:
$ ps -ax |grep ssh 2013 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-$ 3346 pts/1 S+ 0:00 grep --colour=auto ssh $nmap MYSERVER Starting Nmap 6.40 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2019-09-23 15:19 EDT Nmap scan report for MYSERVER Host is up (0.00028s latency). Not shown: 998 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 139/tcp open netbios-ssn 445/tcp open microsoft-ds $sudo service ssh start start: Job is already running: ssh $ sudo service ssh restart ssh stop/waiting ssh start/running
I got no output to
sudo /etc/init.d/ssh status
I read this ssh Connection refused: how to troubleshoot? but the advice there does not seem to cover my case.
