Default Putty

I have installed Ubuntu server 12.04 with ssh. I have configured the network, i think correctly.

I am unable to access through putty. Any ideas what to check or where to go for a solution?

Yes, what is the error message

Assuming you have neither configured a firewall on your client (dropping outgoing connections) nor on your server (dropping incoming ones), you could try the following:

- putty's error message?!
- can you ping it? (in hope server replies to icmp, thus the fw comment above)
- can you access any other open ports on that server
- when accessing via DNS, does the dns record resolve to the correct ip (nslookup / dig)

- is sshd running (ps aux | grep ssh)
- is sshd listening on the correct interface (netstat -tap | grep ssh), should be or <yourserversip>:22
- are incoming packets dropped (e.g. tail -f /var/log messages while trying to access)

Thumbs up Putty

Well, that was the problem I did not get an error message at all, just a blank screen.

Thank you very much for your reply, I found the problem tho. It was an IP issue.
