In our LAN ,all computeres are windows except one which is linux. so i want to let external users have access to this linux PC. We Have ISA server 2006.so I published a non web server protocol with the following information
Server Ip Address" The IP address of Linux PC Protocol : I created a new one : Port Range: 22 , Port Type:TCP,Direction :Inbound Network Listerner: External
after that i Tried to connect to Linux PC by external Users which has Windowx XP, i used Putty . I can see the request comes to ISA server with "Initaited Connection", after a few seconds I get the "Connection time out" on Client PC , and then the "connection Closed" Closes on the ISA server. where could be the problem?
not sure if it is the same problem on your side, but 2 things to consider, I've seen in my environment:
- do not run Putty from a network drive, copy it to an local drive and start it from there (sounds strange, but that was my experience) - increase the MTU size on the Linux machine (typically /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg.ethX)
