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-water...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!

I don't see how this is a shared hosting issue, could you elaborate?
