That means you have not network... The easiest is to reboot, or if you have time, start diagnosing what in your network(s) interface is faulty...

As vbe already said this is perhaps because you have no network connection. This can have a lot of causes (on the client side as well as the servers), nobody can help you there without a lot more information.

If you regain the etwork connection and the problem still persists: every user has 2 attributes, "login" and "rlogin", which can be "true" or "false". See the output of the lsuser-command:

Code:
root@lpar # lsuser -a login rlogin foouser
foouser login=true rlogin=true

"login" allows the user to login at the console (or - which is the same - via the HMC). "rlogin" allows the user to connect to the system via the network. Many ssh-configurations are done in a way they do not honour this rlogin-setting, so you might be able to bypass this if your system is poorly configured, but if everything is set up correctly you should be unable to log on via network if "rlogin" is set to "false".

I hope this helps.
