How can I combat all of these brute force attacks?
This is why you should never have your SSH server on port 22, nor have password authentication turned on for external networks.
ssh on Window Vista and Ubuntu 12.04
Please post the output of your ssh command, with "-vvv" added, ie "ssh -vvv myname@myhost", so we can see where in the connection your issue is occurring. Without any error message or debug output, any suggestions will be just guessing. It could be a firewall issue, it could be a DNS issue....
