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.

That is a connection related error. If you are connecting to your FTP server, try checking if your internet connection is working. The message “Could not establish a connection to host: Connection reset” could mean there is no internet connection. First, try troubleshooting your internet connection. Disconnect the network cable from the network port at the back of the CPU then connect it back.

Open your web browser and visit a site then try clicking some links and then verify that your internet connection is working. If this doesn’t work, unplug the other end of the cable from the Wi-Fi router then plug it back in. See if this works. If this doesn’t work either, restart your router.

If the router has a power button, press it to turn it off then unplug it from the power for about ten to twenty seconds (10 – 20 seconds). Press any button on the router to drain any leftover power or to power cycle. After this, plug the router back to the power and turn it on. See if this works. Also, try disabling SSH from your client.

You can only use SSH when connecting to your server if your FTP server supports SSH.
