So lately I've been having a lot of SSH problems, but I seen a thread very similar to this on another Linux forum, and I'm having the same problem, for some odd reason SSH is not starting, so I keep getting this error:
ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection refused
So I try to check the status of the SSH connection by running the following command:

/etc/init.d/sshd status
When I run that, these are the results I get:

status: stopped
So then obviously I try to start SSH up again, and I get the following:

/etc/init.d/sshd start
Bringing eth0 up...
Failed to bring eth0 up
Not really sure what it could be, I'm kind of stumped on this, any ideas. Thanks!
