I am facing a weird problem on my dedicated server the problem is that i cant connect to ssh normally, i use putty and i get error "connection refused"

i have checked my firewall and sshd_config and ports are same and open for what i am using.
However in Rescue mode SSH works fine .

Anything in the logs?

SELinux? (enabled or diabled)

doublecheck FW rules

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Reading FAQ & Readme First is recommended for new users.

Is the service enabled?

Code: Select all

chkconfig sshd --list
service sshd status
