New installed linux server not getting logged through ssh in putty

Hi,
Newly installed linux environment is not allowing ssh from putty on my windows desktop.
Whereas it is getting logged through ssh if we try from some other unix environment.

How can we fix this?

Please help me.

thanks!!

regards,
sanwin

Shalom,

It would help to know what distribution and version of Linux.

RHEL diag instructions.

Check
/var/log/secure
# for connections

service sshd status
service sshd start # to start
chkconfig sshd on # to configure auto start.

Check for default gateway and DNS settings on the linux machine.

Ping the machine from windows machine.
Check with traceroute and nslookup command.



Thanks
