FW: Can't connect to one server from a particular LAN

The hosts.deny is empty.
The hosts.allow already had an entry of the form:


Representing the correct segment of the Lan I'm trying to connect from.
I added a new line representing the ip/subnet of the machine I'm
currently on.
I restarted sshd - no change: still no connection.

I found tcpd, and used tcpdchk -v to check the rules: everything looked
ok: the daemon was ssh, the client was my machine, the access was

So still no joy!!

I can connect to this server port 22 from a different LAN; I can also
telnet to the server from this LAN.
The debug is from an attempt from an Ubuntu box; I normally attempt to
connect from XP using putty, and get a 'Network error: software caused
connection abort' error.

All suggestions gratefully received...

it looks to me like there is a hosts.allow or hosts.deny that is denying
access from your box.
