    Failed to connect to 65.XXXXXXXXX Network error: Connection refused
    Network error: Connection refused. Can you tell me how to check opensuse

    can install the yast module for sshd and it probably will check these things too:

    sshd running? use "rcsshd status" or can use netstat
    port open in the firewall? port 22, unless changed in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    active on the interface? 65.x.x.x - maybe have multiple interfaces, ip route

    should see details in /var/log/secure - depending on sshd_config

    tcp_wrappers? /etc/hosts.allow or /etc/hosts.deny

    usually i put public facing ssh access onto a non-standard port btw...
