Thanks for all your responses. I must add that I am not a programmer, so all
that the verbose stuff did not mean much too. I bit the bullet and started
afresh - re-installed 5.2.1.

I find that I could ssh to the machine itself, okay - as KeS suggested. The
process ends with the machine connecting to itself!

What I still cannot do is to ssh from another machine (Laptops MacOS X or
windoz) which I would really like to do. On the mac I get this

$ ssh -vvv
OpenSSH_3.6.1p1+CAN-2004-0175, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090702f
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config
debug1: Rhosts Authentication disabled, originating port will not be
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to [] port 22.
debug1: connect to address port 22: Permission denied
ssh: connect to host port 22: Permission denied


The machine I am trying to connect to has NO firewall, yet.
