Getting an error "Connection refused" while trying to connect from terminal.

February 18, 2015 3.2k views

When I tried “ssh root@” from my mac terminal, I am getting this error-“ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection refused”.
Then I checked ssh status by - “/usr/bin/ssh status”- then it says- “Could not resolve hostname status: nodename nor servname provided, or not known”. How can I solve this issue?

Use the console in your panel to figure out why sshd isn’t accepting connections.
