Good day all!
First off, sorry for being so absent recently; I've been a tad busy trying to sort everything out.
Now to the question:
I'm using a bit of software called PuTTY, a free ssh (and telnet + more) client that you use to connect to a server. I have access to a server (dedicated), but when I try and connect I'm not getting a response. I have a sneaking suspicion I need to open port 22 (ssh port normally) or set it to ssh or somethin'...
Any suggestions on what to try?
I would try that out and see if it works. I own two game servers and port forwarding is the part I never did like

I vaguely remember getting to the command prompts and thinking that maybe it wasnt such a good idea ;) LOL
Anyway, I guess that means that I connected OK, even though I didn't do a great deal once I got that far.
I just tested again using these instructions and they got me in fine: http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_7346104_us...ion-putty.html
Also, my web host uses port 2222 to connect.
Ok, tried that out but still no luck, so I need to open port 22 for SSH.
Anyone know how to A, open it, and B, use it for SSH?
It might be an idea to check with your web host that you definitely connect on port 22 in case they use something different like mine does.
I also had to create a seperate SSH login via my web host control panel - I wasn't allowed to use any previously registered passwords. Maybe you need to authenticate another login with your web host too?
As I said, it's kind of a dedicated server so I'd need to set up the ssh port myself.
Well, that's stumped me - that's one area where I like to have somebody else handling things (semi-dedicated is as adventurous as it gets for me) and at work, all things servery are managed by dedicated server folk. *sorry*
Not really sure where to go from there :p
Oh Google, why won't you give me an answer :(
Just incase anyone is actually curious, I've found an un-tested solution to this.
Install Cygwin and use the Linux SSH setup from in there. :)
