I have two Linux servers running right now. The first one works just fine when I try to connect from PuTTY.
- Port 22 is forwarded for my working SSH server.
- Port 911 is forwarded for my not working SSH server
I cannot connect to the second server using the internal IP address or the external IP address. When trying to connect to the internal, I receive this message from PuTTY:
Network Error: Connection Refused.
When I try using the external IP address it will just time out.
The two server IP addresses and other information are listed below.
253.68.xxx.xx:22 <-Port 22 is being forwarded on my router
Not Working server:
192.168.1.222:911 <-Port 911 is being forwarded
I have looked at several posts by other people with this issue, and I have had mixed advice. Some people have advised editing the
/etc/ssh/sshd_config file while others have advised against it.
