    Hello guys,
    When i want to connect via SSH to another server i get the following problem:

    ssh: connect to host port 22: Cannot assign requested address
    The ping gets back the IP Address of the server so it looks fine.
    Do you have an idea what is my problem?

    thanks in advance for your kind help

    What shows
    grep -i bkup707 /etc/hosts
    What operating system is on the host you try to connect from? What exacly is the ssh command line you use? Try adding -v or -vv to get more verbose output, that may reveal what the problem is.
    You should also try connection from another host with different IP-address, to see if maybe the server is blocking your IP-address.
    Also using Internet Search Enginew with
    ssh "Cannot assign requested address"
    might help.

    You might want to ask @florian030 as you seem to host your server there.
