    ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote ...


    Hi all,

    I was able to connect to one linux 7.3 machine through client machines till yesterday. I restarted the machine and when I tried to connect back to it, I received the error

    ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

    Now, I checked that there are no hosts.allow/deny files. I am guessing that they were not there previously.

    So my question is this. Is it safe for me to get a new rsa key through
    "ssh-getkey"

    Will it solve my problem? And if it would, will there be changes that need to be made in the known_hosts file? Thanks a lot in advance.

    ... and when I said ssh-getkey, I meant ssh-keygen.

    Hi, There was an entry in the hosts.deny which was stopping everything.

    It works now. Thanks
