What else can I check?
Try running ssh with up to three -v flags to turn on and increase verbosity. If you have physical access to the server, you can also check out the /var/log/auth.log file to track down any clues. Or try running the daemon with up to three -d flags to turn on and increase verbosity. Note that in debug mode, the server does not detach from the terminal and will not fork so can only handle one incoming connection.
