Check your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.
Look for a line that starts with: AllowUsers
The name that follows should be your username, for example:
AllowUsers martin eduardo grandpa
Restart sshd.

Also, you could have done something on /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow
. If you are not sure, just clean both files.
If it doesn't work, mail-me back.
