PuTTY is timing out when connecting; I am not certain that it is sending out any packets to the server.
I'm not sure that this is PuTTY misbehaving - it might be some other part of my 'phone's software but was hoping you could shed some light.
*I downloaded from sourceforge and then copied to my 'phone
*My 'phone is a Nokia N90
*I have an O2 contract
**#000# tells me
*I selected the .sisx file and it ran the installer, I selected the options to allow it to install and to allow it to access the 'phone's connectivity.
*PuTTY appeared to be installed.
*I then ran PuTTY
*I selected the default profile and, when asked for the Host gave login.chiark.greenend.org.uk and in a subsequent attempt hermes.cam.ac.uk both known to allow SSH connections
*PuTTY informs me it is "Connecting to Network" and then "Connecting to server..."
*After some time it fails, giving no error message.
*I then altered the connection settings to log SSH data and debug and retried the log file says:
Writing new session log (SSH packets mode) to file E:\Documents\C.log
Looking up host "chiark.greenend.org.uk"
sk_namelookup: Looking up ^^
sk_namelookup: Resolved to 220.127.116.11
sk_namelookup: Reversed to chiark.greenenend.org.uk
Connecting to 18.104.22.168 port 22
sk_new Connecting to 22.214.171.124,port 22, family 2048
sk_new Connect failed: -33, Socket connect failed: Timed out(-33)
*I have checked with a friend who is also on O2 and also using PuTTY, he informed me that connection settings identical to mine were allowing him to use SSH.
*I have called O2 to check that SSH is not blocked on my connection - it is not. (But they obviously don't offer help with making 3rd party apps work).
*I have used the same connection to access web pages via the 'phone's web browser.
*My contract forbids me from using the 'phone as a modem (and I don't know how I would do so) so, sorry, haven't tried that.
*I have attempted to SSH into my home network (which we briefly enabled) from my 'phone using PuTTY- watching the connection log from the other end my attempt to connect did not appear to be reaching the network.
