Can you give a little more information, is this in a vserver or the host-
server? How did you create the vserver image and how did you start it?

In what way does it fail? Has the daemon started? Does it log you into the

port give you the OpenSSH banner? Does it fail at the network level?

It's not that you've set `/vservers/foo' to be chmod 000 is it?
Sorry I don't have a definite answer for you, hope this helps.
