Trouble connecting using SSH or Telnet to Fedora 23 for the first time.

I have checked that the sshd is running by using the loopback option... ssh -l myid 192.168.0.111 That worked just fine.

Then I go to my Windows work station and ping my Fedora server... ping 192.168.0.111 That worked just fine.

I copy over some files using sftp FileZilla and that works just fine.

I tried used putty and all I get is a blinking cursor. I tried using Open Text and all I get is a prompt with SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_7.2 as the prompt

I can not type into either terminal

what am I missing?

Nmap output....

I ran nmap and it looks like the port is not blocked...

Not shown: 999 filtered ports

PORT STATE SERVICE VERSION

22/tcp open ssh OpenSSH 7.2 (protocol 2.0)

On the Host Viewer of nmap....

Services tab

Port(1)

Port=====Protocol====State====Service=====Method

22=====tcp=====open=====ssh=====probed

22=====service=====name=====ssh

22=====service=====extrainfo=====protocol 2.0

22=====service=====version=====7.2

22=====service=====conf=====10

22=====service=====method=====probed

The "=====" is to space out the values. I put that in not nmap. This forum keep removing blanks.

When I do a more /var/log/secure I get no log entries for time window where a SSH connection was attempted.

Firewall adjusted?

I have turned off all security on my work station. I made no changes to iptable or ip6table.

To answer my own question.... I tried XShell5 and it worked where the other two did not. Don't know why. And no I don't own stock in Xshell5 nor does any family or friend work there.

Try ssh -vvv <ip> to get max verbose output from SSH Client
