Is port 22 blocked?


I am interested to find out if anyone had installed OpenSSH on the virtual private server before and if it worked.

I am now using a competitor’s hosting and found out that my SFTP server (which I installed myself)'s port 22 is blocked so I cannot access it from the Net. However, I can access SFTP server from within the server though.

I will switch if either one can unblock the blocked TCP/IP port or DreamHost will unblock it for me.


As I said in the identical post you made in another forum, Dreamhost already has OpenSSH installed and is already listening on port 22 for ssh connections.
