Connection error when using ssh and SSH Terminal Emulator


Hello Noelle.

There are several possible reasons for your SSH Terminal Emulator not being able to connect.  Here are some things you can try to troubleshoot your connection:

1.  To make sure that the server is accessible on the network, verify if you can ping the SSH server.  Use Windows' "ping" command from a command prompt. (syntax: ping <IP address>)

2.  Make sure that the server you are trying to connect to has the SSH daemon running.

3.  If the server has its firewall enabled, make sure that port 22 is open and accepting connections.

Try the above suggestions first.  Post back if it still doesn't help.
