Re: can't connect with putty

Sorry for barsting in on this thread in the middle...i didn't read the start of it...
But are you running some kind of FW?? maybe iptables??
Try telnet the hostname like so:
$telnet  <hostname> 22
if you get a connection = good! it not a FW problem.
If not = then you probably block ssh out connections or the other side deny ssh or sshd id down.

Is the DNS config on your server setup right? I know you can have
problems if the server tries to resolve the machine which is connecting
to it and can't (in my experience only slow connections, but who knows).
If I remember right, you can define UseDNS in your sshd_config.

Just a thought
