    Network connection error


    I want to connect by ssh to 2 servers in my company branch which is in the UK. I work in Malaysia.

    I can connect to one server [Server A], however, not the other one [Server B]. The sys admin in UK has checked time and time again that my public key is already properly implemented in the authorized_keys file in that server. But still I am unable to connect. In fact I cannot even access the server. This is the error that I get when I try to ssh into this server using putty :

    HTML Code:
    Network Error : Connection timed out.

    Some of the things that I have checked include :
    a) My Windows Firewall is disabled
    b) ssh is running in that server :

    root@tungsten [668]# netstat -tln | grep 22
    tcp        0      0*               LISTEN
    But if I can connect to Server A, why not Server B?
    **** The sys admins have disabled ping, telnet and root ssh usage on all servers/desktops in our company for security reasons.

    I'm not too familiar about this, but... Have you tried creating a new public key? (Not sure if it will give you more problems than solutions but it might be worth a try).
