I haven't used it myself, but I know several others who have a program called "putty" on their laptops and use it to connect to various Unix servers. I believe they said it will do ssh.

once you putty installed you should be able to connect to your linux box without any settings on putty unless you have a firewall or tcpwrapper on your linux machine preventing ssh connection.

on your linux machine, check your /etc/hosts.allow
or /etc/hosts.deny for any restriction rules.

if you still can not ssh to your linux machine check /var/log/messages for any error message and post back.

Start with some basic troubleshooting...

1. View your syslog/system messages for obvious errors.

2. Make sure you are actually getting to the system from your client. If you can get to the system through some other means, run a netstat loop or snoop to watch for you IP address inbound on your ssh port. See the man page for snoop or loop the following:

while :
netstat -an | grep -iv list | grep <your inbound IP>

3. You could also start sshd in debug mode (sshd -D) or even troubleshoot on a differing port (sshd -D -p <someport> -d).

Putty isn't bad. I prefer SecureCRT ( You could also put cygwin on your box ( - that would even let up have a ssh daemon running on your windows box. The other benefit is being able to use XFree if you don't have an X emulator and have the need.
