    ssh: Network Error: Connection refused

    Dear Friends,

    I have installed Ubuntu in a system and tried connecting from a windows system via "ssh" using "Putty", but i get a error message "Network Error: Connection refused".
    I checked the same via a Ubuntu system by using telnet command "telnet xx.xx.xx.xx 22" but I get the error "telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connectio refused".

    Can anyone help in this subject line.

    Thumbs up Ubuntu - Help

    Dear Justin,

    It seems you dont have "sshd (SSH Daemon)" running, kindly check whether the said daemon is running, if running check for firewall.

    If not running, kindly issue the following command in the root prompt "sudo apt-get install openssh-server openssh-client" and later check issuing following command "/etc/init.d/ssh status", ideally the rely shud be "sshd is running" .

    I guess this solves the problem.
