I'm not a Linux expert either.

I do however understand the Thought Experiment that is Schrödinger’s Cat, and found it really funny that telling if the installation was "alive" or "dead" was so similar to the aforementioned Cat's fate...

The only failure in life is the failure NOT to try.

So much rebooting and re-installing

When you say you can't connect what is the problem? Connection refused, dropped, etc? I would start by checking the ssh daemon is running then auth log, firewall rules, syslog etc.

This is all a bit vague

OK who at rbx as gone and broken something again.

well, dedicated servers should be perfectly up and running after reinstallation. If not, that is an incomplete installation.

I would suggest you to start again: backup anything you need (through rescue mode if problems) and reinstall from scratch. That should complete and SSH should be fully accessible.

Care to elaborate?

It might help others in the future.

Most likely it's because most people regard Fedora as "unstable" as it's too bleeding edge.

But imo, Fedora is fine for the desktop, though I personally would not put it on a server, but that's me :-).

I believe in freedom of choice, so I'm not telling you not to use it, just merely telling you why most people would say don't use it.

(FYI: I used to use Fedora all the time, but now have fallen back to CentOS, and use Fedora in a VM for testing)

Been there done that. NO FIX!

How ever so far i have managed to SSH into the dedicated and had a good look round some files and found a Cron job and disabled some entry's there & after a reboot i am still able to SSH into the box kinda strange that after disabling a couple of the Cron jobs i am able to SSH in to the box.

So at the moment all is good.

And why not F19 ? each to there own!.

So you can ping the server, but not connect at all via ssh? (why on earth did you do FC19)? You may need to boot into rescue, log in, then chroot to your drive then turn off iptables for a start....

Yes.

Yes the dedicated is ping-able from my current location.
