I'm having troubles connecting through SSH to my 1&1 account. When I try to connect with command

userXXX@host -p22 -vv

I have the following output:

OpenSSH_5.8p1 Debian-7ubuntu1, OpenSSL 1.0.0e 6 Sep 2011
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to mySite.com [ip_here] port 22.
debug1: connect to address ip_here port 22: Connection refused

Moreover, once I try to connect through SSH and it fails, even the HTTP access is dead, I cannot access the website through explorer anymore :/

please help ><

I'm running ubuntu 11.10

EDIT: don't know if it can help, here's the .htaccess of the 1and1 server

Options +Indexes

Even if it is an old question, the answer can be useful. I just had the same problem today.

The problem comes from 1and1 that blocks the IP address after some attempts (2-3 I think) to connect with SSH with the wrong password or the wrong username. The site is blocked in SSH as well as HTTP(S).

The solution is to contact them to unblock the address IP and to make sure that password and the username are correct before connecting with SSH.

I just had this same problem, it's currently after 2 failed sets of 3 attempts. –  tkbx Jan 9 '13 at 17:48
    
Is there an easier way than just calling them, i hate this so much! –  Arian Dec 24 '13 at 21:05
    
Looks like, based on follow-up comment on this blog post, that at least other causes for bans are temporary, but I'm trying email support since I don't have time to sit on hold. Would be easier if SSH key login was supported, then I wouldn't be able to goof up the password... (and I'm letting them know as much) –  rpavlik Jul 31 at 18:51

Reboot your router and, unless you have a fixed IP address (which most people don't) you will get a new IP address and 1&1 won't know it's you.
