I just installed 12.04 on a box. I installed openssh-server and started it. On my win7 laptop, I tried to ssh to the ubuntu box with Putty. It timed out. What might be going wrong?
I verified that the sshd process is running on the ubuntu box.
I suppose I should verify that the DNS name that I used from putty on win7 is actually my ubuntu box. I don't remember how to verify the dns name or ip address on the ubuntu box.
I didn't make any changes to sshd_config before starting the server. I rebooted after installing openssh_server.
