Are you sure ssh is running on the other server and that it works
(netstat -ltn ; ssh localhost)? I think that's normally a socket error.

If it is, can you jump on the server and tail the ssh log while you ssh
in from your client? It might tell you why it's rejecting the client.
For example, your IP might have been added to hosts.deny file.
