Cant ssh for a local user

Here is the log im pasting for verbose ssh:

-bash-2.05b$ ssh -v qa_fnp@
OpenSSH_3.6.1p2, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090701f
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug1: Rhosts Authentication disabled, originating port will not be trusted.
debug1: Connecting to [] port 22.
debug1: connect to address port 22: Connection refused
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection refused

machine details:
bash-2.05$ uname -a
SunOS ned 5.9 Generic_118559-11 i86pc i386 i86pc

/etc/hosts.allow and /hosts.deny have all commented lines.

Please suggest what can be the possible reasons, and let me know if i can post any other details

seems like the port is not open. might be a firewall in between or the remote host is listening on a different port.
$ telnet 22

try the above to check if you can connect to port 22 of the remote host.

Firewall is disabled, and I can telnet to the port. sshd is running too.
Seems any authentication problem. PAM or someting

I'm not aware of any PAM option which can prevent you from opening a TCP port. It says "connection refused", meaning, it didn't even begin to open it.

Can you please try it without the user name

# ssh -v

and see how the output would be, if any change

Thanks the issue is fixed now. Problem was with the X11 forwarding settings in sshd_config file.. Smilie
