SSH (dont know really what to call this...)

What do I need to do for my Linux Mandrake because when I try to connect it with SSH using Putty (from windows comp).

It only says:"connection refused", So do I need to set something up? If so what and how?

First make sure SSHD is installed and running on the Linux Box.
Second Make sure you are allowing port 22 through the Linux Firewall
Third, IF you are using xinetd to start sshd (you probably aren't, but I don't
have any idea about your configuration) you need to make sure your
/etc/hosts.allow file is set up to allow ssh connections from your windows

If you need more explanation for any of these steps, post back to this forum.

Hope this helps,
