Windows Error 10061: Bitvise Tunnelier - SSH2 Client 4.06a

Connection method. (within uni so connection through LAN)

Connecting to SSH2 server ftp://69.59.149.193/econquer0628.rar:22 via 147.197.215:1080 SOCK5 proxy.

Getting this error from windows XP Home. any ideas?

Connection failed. Connect() failed: Windows error 10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

The main reason why I want to be able to get this to work is so that I can use P2P programs, play Unreal Tournament 2004 and update my security software such as adaware on the Internet at my own connection in my Uni bedroom.

thanks for the help in advance.

The error message means that either the server or proxy isn't listening on that address and port, or there is a firewall on the way preventing you to access that server or proxy.

I'm also not sure about the URL you're trying to use, it doesn't seem like an SSH server. If I try to connect to that IP I also get 10061. I can connect on port 21 though, so it is most likely a plain FTP server. You won't be able to use Tunnelier to access an FTP server.

yea i'm at uni and am connecting through their server, and they most probably have got NAT setup which is why it wont work.

if you can, give me a working SSH server I can try to connect to with Tunnelier with my server then I can see if it will still work with the connection settings I have i.e. Uni server which I think has NAT firewall.

I don't think NAT is an issue here. SSH uses a single TCP connection that is originated by the client. Therefore, NAT is (can be) an issue on the SSH server's side (server accepts connections), but never on the client's.

Sorry, but we don't provide any SSH services, we just provide the software. You need to have access to a SSH server outside the uni network. You can set up the server yourself, or find a free or payable solution (usually in relation to anonymous internet service).

Btw. Unreal Tournament 2004 is a highly interactive video game, where latencies introduced by connection tunneling will most probably have a negative inpact on the game play (higher ping). And if the game uses UDP connections, then the game cannot be tunneled with SSH. (SSH can only tunnel TCP connections.)

It could mean that the User ID was not enabled for SSH login.

I had this yesterday with OpenSSH, where I had failed to add an "AllowUser xxx" statement to sshd_config so that userId xxx could login with SSH.

I find it unlikely that this would result in error 10061. This error occurs if the TCP connection cannot be established, and there's no way for the server to know what username you are going to use before the TCP and SSH sessions are established.

I'm not sure whether you're asking me or saguaro, but at least on my side I am too puzzled, at least at this point, to be able to provide help. :-/
