While I can connect from a client to the server (
openssh <servername> prompts for login info), I get "
ssh: connect to host <servername> port 22: Connection refused" on another one.
Being not a UNIX wizard (thus: sorry for all the wrong or missing terms in this question), I am using unison to synchronize file system branches. unison uses an ssl tunnel via ssh. That´s why I have copssh running on the server (XP) and also on the client (to have a good ssh client).
The machine that fails has a fresh install of copssh. All machines are running XP. I tried shutting down all local firewalls, and have been looking around in openssl and ssh config files, but I am totally lost in finding the cause. I don't even find a useful log, or something. The event protocol of Windows' on the server does not contain any entry during the failed connect process.
How can I diagnose this? I really want to fix this.
The LAN is using an N300 sireless router model WNR2000v2. The "faulty" client is on wired LAN, the working one on wireless. It still works, however, if I take the working client into the wired LAN (I've checked this). There is no port 22-blocking rule anywhere.
I have browsed all related questions, but found nothing really comparable except for answers that cover possible causes I have already verified.
