Somehow sshd stopped running and no amount of start, restart or onestart will make it go again. I normally ssh into it from a dual-boot laptop computer that shows up on the network as gabi-buntu when running Ubuntu Karmic, and as gabi-pc when running Windows XP Pro. Neither my Putty connection nor the Linux terminal can establish a ssh link anymore.
Upon rebooting the server, I am greeted with "/etc/rc: WARNING: run_rc_command: cannot run /usr/sbin/sshd". In addition, a message will appear saying things like
rpc.statd: failed to contact host gabi-buntu RPC: port mapper failure RPC: timed out
Everything else works fine. The FreeBSD 7.2 box runs a print server, a Samba server, and an Apache server for a wiki via https. It also serves up NFS shares for Linux clients.
