It's look like sshd not installed or not started.
yum install openssh-server
chkconfig sshd on
service sshd start
What is the result when you go to the server's console, open Terminal and type "ssh root@localhost"?1 person found this helpful
Thanks for support. I installed open-ssh server.When I started as service ssh start, it ended with error message stating that " touch: cannot touch '/var/lock/subsys/sshd : no such file or directory". Could you please help me on this issue.

OEL 5.5 comes with openssh-server installed by default. It should not be necessary to manually install, setup and start the ssh daemon.1 person found this helpful
What have you installed and how?
And what is the output of:
yum list openssh-server
service sshd status
