I have trouble connecting to a server with
ssh from my Lubuntu 14.04 computer, although it can be done from other machines. I can't get to the address online either (others can).
Am currently using a 3G network from my phone, but this doesn't seem to be the problem as I can connect to the server using another computer with the same 3G connection.
This is my attempt to connect:
root@Elizabeth:/# ssh USER@HOSTNAME ssh: connect to host HOSTNAME port 22: Connection timed out
UPDATE: Saw that
ping HOSTNAME renders the wrong IP-address, so I guess this could be a clue to what's wrong. Any way to solve that? I can get around it though by doing
ssh USER@IPADDRESS, as suggested to me in a comment.
Some further info below, if it's useful. I'm new to working with servers and networking, so do say if there is other information needed to say what is wrong.
