Are you trying to connect it in the LAN?
because if you are trying to connect static IP outside LAN, it needs extra settings for the static IP server.
The port 22 should be opened on router through which you are being connected outside LAN.
check your firewall setting of the server. Is port 22 opened there?
Can you connect any other system of same LAN using ssh?
Have you installed client and server ssh both on the server?
