I have two users. The first is the one I created when I set up my hosting account, and is the one that I am trying to connect to SSH through PuTTY. These are the steps I have taken (not real user name).
Demo domain: pleasework.com
Demo Database domain: db.pleasework.com
User Account Type: Shell account - allows SFTP/FTP plus ssh access.
Shell Type: /bin/bash
– I have followed the directions in the wiki here
Category: Connection > Tunnels:
Source port: 3306
Host Name: wildCat.pleasework.com
Session Name: WildCatSHH
Now, when I double click the ‘WildCatSHH’ to bring up the SSH Tunnel window (not sure what to call that), The window name reads, “wildCat.pleasework.com - PuttY.”
After 30 seconds I get the following error:
“Network Error: Connection timed out”
What am I doing wrong? I don’t even get prompted for the user?
This is all very frustrating to me, mainly due to it being such an easy fix (At least I am willing to bet it will be), but I don’t know I have to do to fix it!
Grrr… I am going to take a shower, and come back to this.
Thanks again for taking a look.
