For some reason, cvs does not work anymore since I installed F17-64 over F-15-64... the port 22 is opened, ssh is running... That's the limit of my knowledge ! Would anyone have a suggestion to make ?

I have the following answer when using cvs :

ssh: connect to host myhost.fr port 22: Connection timed out cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

Thanks !

it seems this has nothing to do with cvs but rather in Fedora.

You can check manually the port you're trying to reach is open using the command

nc -w 3 myhost.fr 22

it is replies

Connection timed out.

This is a port policy issue.

The thing I' thinking up is firewalld is certainly active. To disable it do

systemctl stop firewalld

and to disable firewalld for sure, do

systemctl disable firewalld
