SSH Cygwin and PuTTY problem


Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm new to this forum and need some help.


I'm totally new to SSH, never ever used it. And i'm trying to create a tunnel on our network so that i can connect to my work computer via Remote Desktop (WinXP).

What i have done so far is forwarded port 54444 to the Win2003 server running Cygwin and installed OpenSSH on the Cygwin (followed this http://chinese-watercolor.com/LRP/printsrv/cygwin-ssh.html tutorial).

And this seem to work.


The problem appears when i connect using PuTTY, it connects fine (i checked the PuTTY log) but 1 second after connection the connection closes and PuTTY quits.

Do i have to do something more on the SSH server? Right now i have just installed and started it.

Do i have to add tunnels on the server as well as on puTTy?

I have no idea as i have never used SSH before. Is it so that if i don't tell the server to do something spesific it will just close the connection after connection success?


Thanks alot!
