Like what it says? We need specifics.

What does it actually say? Try it, and copy the error word for word, letter for letter, keystroke for keystroke. Screencap it if you have to, but we need the actual error, not a half-remembered description of it.

it is not showing any message in the prompt but instead of that only blank window with subject network error. I hope you understand what i mean to say.

What i have done so far is I have installed Ubuntu on windows7 and to access it I have installed putty on my windows machine.
When i tried to login using ip address of machine it is giving the above error.

Did i miss any steps in between..or is there any setting need to be done on ubuntu before login from putty on windows7.

if you want to access the windows 7 files inside the ubuntu, then you need to mount the drives

why do you want to connect it through putty ?
