I have a ubuntu 14.04 x64 distribution and I was following a tutorial I found on the net to harden it:
I changed the port to 1022.
Before this I could normally login using my SSH privatekey through putty on port 22.
Now when I try to open the putty connection I get Network error: Connection refused
In putty I even changed the port to 1022 and retried but I get a different error this time:
Network error: Connection timed out
What am I doing wrong?
thanks in advance
