I try to connect to my VPS but I can't, even if i use an another computer. But when I use a different connection (other IP) it works.

So I was wondering, why my VPS blacklist my IP ? And where can I change this ?

I'm using CENTOS.


I got with iptables :

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Try iptables --list and see if there's any rules for SSH. –  ta.speot.is Jan 12 '12 at 8:51
iptables are clear... any idea ? –  anasbud Jan 12 '12 at 9:40
Are you sure SSH is not blocked on your end? I know it sounds silly, but it's possible. I guess the only way to test is to try SSHing to something else. –  John Chadwick Jan 12 '12 at 9:41
I try SSH from an another IP and it works ... It is not just SSH, it's everything, I can't access to my VPS at all, port 80, 21, 22... I can't do anything. –  anasbud Jan 12 '12 at 10:01
Could you please specify the error you get when you try to SSH from your machine? That could help. –  Bibhas Jan 12 '12 at 10:20
