Why is OpenSSH blocking connections from dynamic IP addresses?

    Hey hey!  I'm not sure I have a good explanation for this one since it seems to be limited to openssh and not cPanel itself.  After you adjusted the sshd:all:allow section, did you restart the SSH service?

    Thanks for the suggestion.  I've configured sshd to run on a second port, open on the firewall, and have been able to login on that (after restarting sshd!) so this will do as a workaround.  I'll be sure after I've checked it from another IP address and will get back with the result.

    Using another port for ssh has resolved this issue for me and I can now connect from any IP address.
