I am trying to connect to my linux shared hosting via SSH from my windows 10 laptop. It is not connecting at all. I have tried Putty (both 32 and 64bit), MobaXterm and one other SSH client and I am getting the above error on Putty:
Network Error: Software caused connection abort
and this error on MobaXterm
Server unexpectedly closed network connection
It worked the first few times on Putty then all of a sudden started throwing the above error. My friend can connect to my shared hosting from his machine on a different network, but he does have the same model router as me. I don't even see the prompt to enter login credentials, connection is refused prior to that.
I have talked to my hosting provider and they were able to connect. I have literally spent all day trying to figure this out.
