Ok. A breakthrough. I lowevered my security setting in the Mandrake control panel from Higher to High and now I'm able to get a login prompt from the Windows machine!

My question now is related to security... when I first installed Mandrake, it stated that setting the security level to Higher was recommended if I wanted to run a web server.

I do need to run a web server! But it seems that setting the security level to High is the only way that I can login into SSH from Windows. Any thoughts?

change hosts.allow

I had the same problem and saw this in another thread from poster "colnago".

See if adding 'sshd:ALL' to /etc/hosts.allow does anything.

It worked for me without changing the security level from higher to high.
