I am trying to connect to server through Putty. It works fine for few days. Then I entered wrong password few times and Putty is stuck and I force close it. As soon as I do this, I am getting error "Connection timed out" if I try to connect to the site again. I cannot even open my website from home now.

This happened again at friends house today. I am working on my site through Putty all of a sudden putty hangs I force close it. Now I cannot open my website from here nor can I connect through putty.

I dont even know what to search for on google I tried but cant find anything out there on how to fix this issue.

    Is it happening on all servers or just that one in particular? – SolidSnake859 Jun 28 '15 at 7:03

  • @SolidSnake859 - But how will ports affect site from opening in browser? – NoviceMe Jun 28 '15 at 7:21

Download zenmap and scan your website for open ports. When you find a few, make sure your router has those ports open using this tool: http://www.portchecktool.com. Finally, try: 1) Restarting your router, or 2) Downloading Tor to anonymize your traffic and prevent the server from recognizing you...just in case entering your password incorrectly caused you to be blocked from that website. Hope this helps you!

  • Any port number i enter on portchecktool.com it says connection timed out? I tried 22, 25, 1881 – NoviceMe Jun 28 '15 at 8:08
