Can execute SSH directly from Windows CMD into Centos 7, but not the other way around

Post by kix » 2018/07/28 04:16:11

I followed instructions, here (link), and here, to use Cygwin64 to install an SSH server on my Windows 7 desktop.

From there I can open cmd.exe an administrator (required), and execute: ssh [centos 7 OS username]@[LAN address]

But when I try to do the same from laptop that has centos 7 installed, I get a connection time out.

On the windows 7 side, I've configured the firewall to allow both outbound and inbound port 22 connections.

Full output:

Code: Select all

You're trying to connect via ssh to an ssh daemon running on a Windows machine? Check the port is open in Windows firewall.

I stated I opened the ports in windows firewall.

Edit: Problem seems to occur in Linux Mint, after explicitly installing ufw and permitting port 22.
