"Connection refused" specifically means that the local system successfully contacted the remote system, and the remote system wasn't accepting connections on the port in question. In other words,'s NIC is fine, the network between you and it is fine, but it claims not to be running an ssh daemon at the moment.

It sounds like you might have another computer on your LAN using the same IP address. These mass disconnection events occur when the other computer sends out a packet and your switches decide is suddenly attached to a different port and using a different ARP address.

Another possibility is that mmagdb is behind some kind of NAT router or stateful firewall, and the router is going nuts every so often.
