Can you ssh from the Linux box to the Linux box?

Make sure ssh is running... service sshd restart

You might have a firewall issue that's not allowing the Windows box to connect.

You won't be able to ssh from the Linux box to the Windows box... PuTTY is only a client, not a server. I don't know if there is an ssh server for Windows. You can use something like VNC if you won't to go that way.

Talking

Hi: I was having the samee problem. It was suggested that I turn off my firewall (even though I did NOT have one running) and it did indeed solve the problem. Try this as root 'service iptables stop'. Also you will not be able to ssh from the Linux box to the Windows machine, unless you get a SSH server running on that machine. PS welcome to the wonderful, but confusing world of Linux.
