My current server runs Linux Ubuntu 10.10 Server Edition.

I can type a name to the computer to connect, but it won't connect instead it keeps on establishing the connection forever.

Make sure the Secure Shell Daemon is installed and running properly.

1. install sshd

# apt-get install openssh-server

2. run the service

# ssh-keygen -t rsa

# ssh-keygen -t dsa

# /usr/sbin/sshd

Hello Mandy Miller,

Did you also try logging in as root in Ubuntu 10.10 Server Edition?  If not try this method.

1. Open Terminal Console and create the root account.

2. Enter a new password twice for a root user.

3. If everything went fine you have a message stating that the password has been successfully updated.

4. Enable the root account and done.

Then try to log-in again. 

You can check the screenshots of the method.

Regards,

Elliottsims
