I installed the latest version of ubuntu on ESXi as a VM. I then installed openSSH and it worked once from a remote machine and got hung up when trying to execute a command on mysql. Ever since I can only ssh to the VM from within itself (localhost can ssh to itself but nothing else). Any ideas?

Error shown is

ssh: connect to host port 22: Operation timed out

EDIT as per dan08 I reran ssh with -v and now it's working. Very weird. Nothing has changed. Box wasn't restarted or anything.

  • What is the error? No connection? Connection refused? ssh -v might help your troubleshooting – Dan Aug 7 '14 at 14:07
