          Hi.
          It's look like sshd not installed or not started.
          Try:

          yum install openssh-server
          chkconfig sshd on
          service sshd start


          Regards.

            What is the result when you go to the server's console, open Terminal and type "ssh root@localhost"?

              Hello

              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.

                What have you installed and how?

                And what is the output of:

                yum list openssh-server
                service sshd status
