On a Godaddy dedicated server I cannot connect by SSH anymore.
I get "connection closed by remote host" right after I enter correct user/password, otherwise it would say that password was wrong.
What is the most common cause for this?
I am thinking that my IP was banned because I once entered wrong password[s].
Do these servers use to do ban IPs when password was wrong?
I would contact your hosting provider. Normally they can reboot the dedicated server in single usermode and log in from the console where they bypass the SSH server and password checking. They may be able to reset the password for you in this way.
