Please help me with my rectal/cranial inversion.
I am using Mandrake 10 - its a new/clean installation. I made sure the firewall is turned off. FTP and Open SSH servers are turned on.
I can connect to a user account through FTP (but not root) so the connection seems ok.
When I try to connect with SSH, the connection always closes without ever asking for a user name or password.
My client is an XP machine. I have tried putty, OpenSSH, FiSSH, and TTSSH.
I guess these things are too easy for me to figure them out, because I have had no progress in getting any of then to connect.
Also, is there a way to configure Mandrake so you can FTP via root? Can you SSH via root?
Thnx in advance
