I am having an issue on a server with starting up the ssh-server-g3 app. I have recently upgraded from 6.2 to 6.4 The only other changes made was an updated assigned IPv6 address. Errors are below:

101 Server_start_failed, Error: Generic error, "Failed to start listener address: SSH_IPADDR_ANY port: 22" 109 Server_listener_failed, Listener: SSH_IPADDR_ANY , Listener Port: 22

I stopped both sshd and ssh-server-g3 to bring it back up but it will not.

Anyone seen this or have suggestions?

This might be because the server did not stop correctly before trying to restart.

Try connecting to port 22 to verify that the server indeed stopped:

telnet localhost 22

or checking that there is no ssh-server-g3 process running.

If that's the case you could try issuing stop and start commands separately.
