Was this disabled in the latest firmware or something?
did you enable USBnet? There are multiple instructions posted at this forum, some of which may be obsolete for your device. Perhaps you need to use different instructions.
Did you install the "simple USBnet" hack?
Did you install "mmcblk0p2_ssh" (diags with SSH pre-installed)?
Is your kindle booted to main or diags when you try to SSH in?
How did you "enable" USBnet?
We do not have enough information to help you. Please provide answers for the questions above so that we CAN help you. Thanks.
EDIT: There are reports that the latest OTA 5.1.0 firmware update from amazon DELETES the dropbear files needed for sshd when you reboot your kindle. Perhaps that is your problem. We may need a hack that keeps dropbear on the USB drive, like the K3 usbnetwork hack.
