Check your log files, they may provide more detailed information on why
the connection is refused.

Several possibilities, if you are trying to login as root ssh may be
configured to deny root logins.  

ssh can also be configured to permit only selected users via the
AllowUsers statement in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.  If your user is
not listed there it will not let you in.

Verify that your caps lock key is not set. :)

Another possibility that I am not sure about is selinux may be blocking
the ssh connection.

All of these possibilities should show up in your log files.
