Ok so I have been trying to get putty to run on windows 7, with very little luck.
Here is the event log from putty:
2012-08-09 15:23:28 Looking up host "redacted ip"
2012-08-09 15:23:28 Connecting to redacted ip port 22
2012-08-09 15:23:49 Failed to connect to redacted ip: Network error: Connection timed out
2012-08-09 15:23:49 Network error: Connection timed out
So far I have ensured that my routers firewall is off, turned off my firewall and anti-virus (including windows), tried various suggestions from Google including other SSH clients to no avail. I have ensured that both my router and computer are cleared for port 22. I have used netstat as well, and found nothing blocked.
The only thing that has had any success is booting windows into safe mode with networking.
That has gotten it to work but outside of that no luck. So my best guess is it is something that I am not thinking of that is blocking it. So anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? Any advice would be appreciated.
I have used the same user in safe mode and not in safemode. The account I am using is marked as the owner of putty in taskmanager. Trying it as telnet gave no further results. Using nmap it properly shows port 22 as tcp open and ssh. I have also used filezilla to connect to a ftp server in the past with no trouble.
