Cannot Connect Using Putty

I am unable to connect to OpenSUSE 11.0 computer using putty.

What else is needed.


Have you opened the ssh port in the firewall? If not YaST -> Security
and Users -> Firewall, then under the ‘Allowed Services’ select the box
on the right called ‘Service to Allow’ scroll to Secure Shell Server
hit add and next etc.

enable “secure shell server” in firewall external zone…

In addition to the firewall port being opened, make sure the SSHD service itself is running. Yast -> System -> System Services.
