first, take a look at the log files, to see if your ssh terminates
at the right host/vserver/etc ...

while this for sure is a way to configure sshd, a better solution
is to use the chbind, or if available v_sshd script (which uses
chbind for you ;)
chbind --ip <physical-ip> <sshd> <options>
you might ask, why should this be better? the answer is simple,
if you use for example chbind --ip eth0, sshd will bind to the
correct ip, regardless of the actual interface configuration, where
a change of the ip address would render a 'ListenAddress' configured
sshd useless (maybe paul sladen can explain why this would be
preferable ;) ...
