I have done the necessary port forwarding and have managed to access to my home server through putty 0.59. I read the documentation and knew that I can create a tunnel using putty to allow Winscp to connect from my workplace to my homeserver. I have follow the instructions stated in the documentation (https://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_tunnel) . But each time winscp will get stuck at connecting to host and eventually give me host has not answered for more than 15seconds. Still waiting. After sometime, it will display Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server sent command exit status 0. (note: my putty is still running.)
Below is the event log of putty:
2007-04-27 14:27:37 Local port 3555 forwarding to xxxxxxxx:22
2007-04-27 14:27:37 Allocated pty (ospeed 38400bps, ispeed 38400bps)
2007-04-27 14:27:37 Started a shell/command
2007-04-27 14:27:44 Opening forwarded connection to xxxxxxxxx:22
2007-04-27 14:30:54 Forwarded connection refused by server: Connect failed [Connection timed out]
I am connected to my home server through putty on port 443. winscp have been set to the same proxy setting I did on putty(http). Do I have to set my router to port forward port 3555 to my homeserver too?
Can someone assist me on this?
Tks in advance.
