unable to ssh out of centos4 server

Using the openssh-clients we are unable to ssh out of the server..

we just get a blank line after typing "ssh hostname" or even by "ssh ipaddress"

Re: unable to ssh out of centos4 server

What is the status of your firewall?

service iptables status

Try stopping the firewall

service iptables stop
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
