    Default Beginner - Local Network - How connect to a Win7 PC?

    Hi,
    I tried to connect to a Win7-PC in a LAN via SSH but connection was refused by the Win7-PC. I would like to have access from my Suse13.1-PC to the filesystem of the Win7-PC since this way works with Linux-PCs very well. So I think I have to configure the Win7-PC so that it is open for SSH requests by my Suse-PC. Does anyone know how to do this (Firewall?, Open Port xx? for Network Connections).
    Thanks in advance ;-)

    You need first an ssh server on Windows...

    filezilla,putty would install a client on windows so you can use the ssh protocol(basic in linux world). if you want to share files/disks with windows look into samba. ask questions and someone will try to help.

    But he needs a server, in Windows, not a client. If you google for "ssh
    server for windows" you find entries from Microsoft and others. in the
    wikipedia there is an article comparing lots of servers.

    I installed a SSH-Client (Bitvise SSH Client) and a SSH-Server (Bitvise SSH Server) and i was able to connect from Win7 via SSH Client to my OpenSuse-PCs but I had no success when I tried to connect from Suse to Windows7 via Dolphin and "fish", in this case I was asked to fill in the password for the Win7-user but after filling it in, it was not accepted. Why? Can anyone tell me how to connect from Suse13.1 to Win7 and where to find the Logfiles?

    To connect from Windows to Linux via ssh, people normally install
    "putty" in Windows, because it is free and works well.

    The ssh server is native to Linux, you don't have to install anything
    else; but it is not to Windows, there you have to install an ssh server.
    In this case, the one you mention above.

    What login you have to use and how to diagnose problems, well, you will
    have to read that Windows program documentation, it is nothing related
    to Linux. I'm sorry, I have never used that software, so I would have to
    start googling.

    hello, may be you can still arrange for another way: after shrinking the Win partition and creating swap, / , and /home on the extended partition I added a small FAT32 partition, which is now part of windows and could be used for downloading. When mounting it into o.S. (e.g. /Fat 32 ) stored items are available in Linux. regards ebkr

    Thanks for your help and your ideas! (@Ebkr: A good idea but in this case I want to try it via SSH from linux to windows. This should be possible, too.)

    I am still trying to connect from an "opensuse13.1-system" to a "windows7-system":
    problem: after connecting via dolphin with

    fish://user@192.xxx.xxx/home/user/
    or via console

    ssh 192.xxx.xxx
    to the "windows7" and typing username and password

    the login is not accepted and after three attempts I have to start again.

    So to find out why it is like that, I would like to see the logfile to these attempts on my "openSuse13.1".
    Where can I find the logfile?

    Maybe there is a problem with the configuration of the (bitvise-)ssh-server on "windows7"?

    In WINDOWS!

    It is Windows who is rejecting the connection, it is nothing to do with
    the client, which in this case, it is ssh in Linux.

    Try, in Linux, like this:

    Code:
    ssh -v 192.xxx.xxx

    Yes, of course. I told you that a week ago. The FAQ is here:
