Windows – PuTTY on Windows 10 showing Connection Timed Out

puttysshwindows 10

I installed PuTTY on windows 10 to connect to a workstation. On entering the IP address it remains idle for a while and says Fatal Error, Connection Timed Out. I tried disabling my firewall and turning off my anti-virus(K7 total security) but still no use. Can anybody help resolve this issue? Another friend of mine was able to connect without any hindrance, even he has windows 10.

Best Answer

Check, If you can establish TCP Connection on port 22(ssh server) or whatever configured.

When opening PuTTY :

  • Input the hostname of the ssh server
  • but change the Connection type to Telnet and port number to 22.

You should see some greeting message from the ssh server.
