Not able access Linux PC from XManager

 
I have downloaded the latest ver of Xmanager 2.0 and installed on my XP machine. When I tried to access my remote Linux PC (connected to LAN)through Telnet, It reflects with "CANNOT ESTABLISH CONNECTION TO "IP-ADDRESS" on the port no 23".

I have disabled the Firewall also.
Still problem is coming?? Can Any through my mistake here.

Telnet is disabled in most Linux machines for security reasons now a days. Try using the SSH protocol instead. In most cases, you can start SSHD like this:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd start

Or if you are using a Red Hat machine, use the following command:

service sshd restart

Keep in mind that you need root privilage.

After restarting SSHD also the same problem is persisting.

Can any one through some light on this problem.

If the following assumption is true:

1. SSHD is running
2. Firewall has been disabled

Then, it¿s either something is blocking the communication between your PC and the server or you are trying to connect to a wrong server.

If you have any physical firewall between your PC and the server, it may be blocking this port.

Make sure that the TCP 22 port is allowed on the remote host and SSHD is running. Also, check if you are using the correct IP address.

If your problem is still not fixed, describe your network environment in more detail.

Yes, SSHD is running and firewall is diabled.
Using winSCP(SSH protocol), I am able to connect to my Linux machine.
When I tried with Xmanager, I am able to connect.
IP address is correct and I am using port no 22 for SSH protocol.

Linux and Host(Windows XP) machine connect to Local network.

WinSCP does not support SSH. It only supports SCP and SFTP protocols.

Try this test:

Click Start > Run, and then type cmd. In the cmd window, type the following command:

            telnet $server_ip_address 22

Replace $server_ip_address with an actual IP address of your server. If the result is something like this:

            C:\Documents and Settings\username>telnet 192.168.1.39 22
            Connecting To 192.168.1.39...Could not open connection to the host, on port 22: Connect failed

It means your server is not reachable or the SSH server is not running on the server.

What is the name and version of your server and SSH server anyway?
