Is there a firewall rule in place to allow port 22?

Hint:

;)

BTW: I'm curious, is there any particular reasons why you're using dropbear in favour of openssh-server?

Did you start it after installing? It does not need configuration, but you have to start it if you want to use it, as with all programs ...

For reference, here's the link to the other thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2759

And the info how to install openssh-server via Mageia packages:

adding the ssh server is rather easy:

Code: Select all
urpmi sshd && service sshd start

It will automatically start at runlevel 2 to 5.

Can't get much easier than that, i'm afraid.

Well, maybe you should have asked beforehand? ;)
