Vista and ssh doesn't work

    For some reason with Vista I cannot ssh to my router.

    Enabled settings to allow putty.exe in windows firewall.

    Keep getting fatal error: cannot connect

    Anyone have any input on why this is happening?

    It works fine under windows XP. :(

    what version of vista do you have?

    The machine I am trying has home premium :/

    Are you doing it logged in as Administrator?

    Vista Ultimate SP1. Not logged in as admin. Should still work on home premium, I would think!

    Do you have windows firewall set to allow all outbound traffic?
    Or are you filtering just for putty?

    The only way I can get it working is to allow ALL outbound traffic.

    Must be something with Bill's Firewall... great job MS.

    Not sure why this is happening on your end but have tried this on 2 machines -- no issues like that.
