SSH not connected

I think you must check your ssh config file for looking in some prameters like Time out and accept connction.
After you can see or create the RSA key or other depend to your strategy to give permission for server 2 for making connection with server 1

Let me in line

server1/etc>ssh sever2
ssh: connect to host localhost ...

Is that a typo? server2 is the same as server1? Maybe you have something wrong in your /etc/hosts or DNS?
As former poster mentioned - did you do any changes to your sshd_config? If you have no special needs you usually don't change anything in there.

can both the servers talk to each with ping(With hostname)???

Also, can you telnet direct to the port? I.e.
# telnet remote_server 22
