I am a newbie trying to learn Ubuntu Server. So far, I have been having alot of success and I am enjoying the learning process. However, I can only access the server via the terminal on the server itself. I have been trying to use Putty to access it via SSH from my Windows desktop, but the connection times out every time and does not even get to the point where I get a prompt on the Putty screen.
I installed the openssh-server via this command:
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
the server has a static ip address
What am I doing wrong?
