problem with Windows 7 ssh client

so after having windows xp 64 bit for so long i decided to install windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. ive never had problems with putty and connecting ssh or anything with windows xp. now i notice 2 things. i cannot ssh if it does work once i log out of the server i cannot ssh back in. i assume my computer is leaving my server with a bad taste in its mouth, in so many words. i also noticed today that i can ping anything but my server. both of these machines are behind the same gateway. please help asap

I'm not sure as to what the problem is at this point, but have you tried running putty in compatibility mode to see if the behavior changes?

It might be a problem with the SSH host key which is stored by Putty in the Windows registry.

Backup your registry, as a precaution.

Run regedit
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys
Find the RSA or DSA key associated with your server, right click it and select Delete

Try connecting again

If the firewall is on, try turning it off just to see if it works better.. if so, probably a firewall settings tweak

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Once you exit PuttY, try running:
putty -cleanup
before starting it again, and see if that helps.

so far ive ran it in compatibility mode and ive been able to steadily connect the issue is not intermitent but only on 1 of the servers i decided to reinstall that server due to other issues anyway. but i will find out if i have the same issue once the install is done so im going to keep the question open till i find out.

Been using Putty on the x64 versions of both Vista and Windows 7 for a couple of years, without issue, what firewall are you using?
