Hi Minal,

When you try to connect, do you get an access denied error connecting, or a login failure (after getting the login prompt)? From your post, it sounds like there is a secure tty issue. Can you log in as a non-root user from putty? Try googling for securetty (one word) and that should at least get you started.

Hope this helps...
Aloha,
Doug

For fedora3.............

When I am trying to connect to fedora machine through putty,
It shows "Network error: Connection timed out"
It does not shows login prompt

For solaris..................
When I am trying to connect to solaris machine through putty,
It shows login prompt, after providing username and password
it shows error "Access denied"
I can login using normal user.
Then using "su" command I can login as root user.
But directly I can not login as "root" user.

Hi Minal,

I'd bet $100 that your solaris machine is experiencing a secure tty problem I mentioned from my previous post. Do a little research on your side, the problem should be fairly simple to figure out.

Your fedora3 is experiencing a network config problem or failure. That in turn is more than likely masking a secure tty problem. Can you ssh on the console of the box to localhost? When the system boots, do you see the networking services start with the green "OK"? Can you ping other machines on your lan from the fedora3 box and vice-a-versa? Is your putty machine on the other side of a gateway that the fedora3 box is missing a route to? Is putty configured to use the correct ssh protocol and version that the fedora3 box is using?

I hope this gives you some more troubleshooting ammo .

Aloha,
Doug
