Topic "No answer from the remote host"

Author Message


I think I've read al posts but I have not found a solution. I'm a "really end-user" so excuse me.

I'm tryng to connect to a ReadHat 9 server (positioned on the DMZ port of a firewall), from a Windows network (by our internal proxy).

I get a "time out" message: non response from the remote host after 15 seconds.

I'have verified on the server and it seems all is working fine.

It's possibile that I forget something in the server configuration ? (iptables, configuration files, user privileges) or there is a problem in the connection ?

Thanks for your help !!!!

The log file is not complete. Also make sure that you're using bash shell.
