I have a paid account and should be able to connect using SSH. Below is the console output when I attempt to connect with the bash shell in Debian Squeeze.
buttons@debiandesktop:~$ ssh email@example.com <<<<<<:>~ PythonAnywhere SSH. Help @ https://www.pythonanywhere.com/help/#id_ssh firstname.lastname@example.org's password: Last login: Mon Oct 29 01:44:17 2012 from Mars Connection to ssh.pythonanywhere.com closed.
It appears I can connect, but the connection is immediately closed. I know my password is being accepted because I get a very clear "Permission denied" message when purposely using the wrong password.
