I'm trying to establish a remote ssh connection to a Linux filesystem from Windows 7.
The purpose is to be able to enable Windows programs (like OneNote) to write files to the Linux box, so they can be stored there instead of on the local machine.
A few things stick out at me in that tutorial however.
1) He seems to be connecting to the server on port 22:
But in the 2 pictures before that, he has destination port 139 on his server
Is that wrong? To get any response out of my server at all, I leave tunnel source port 139, and set tunnel destination port 22, not 139.
2) The main problem I encounter after establishing the SSH connection (a normal putty window opens, and I log in with my Linux username/pass), is with attempting to map the network drive.
Really I don't know what the 2nd name means (after
I thought connecting to
\\127.0.0.1\foldername was the deal, but it appears no.
Also shouldn't I specify
\\127.0.0.1:139 to make sure it goes to the SSH tunnel?
3) Finally I find even if I do manage to apparently hit the server at
\\127.0.0.1\, it doesn't recognize any of the login credentials that I could possibly have set up
Credentials for the Windows machine don't work, credentials for the Linux box don't work.
