Network Error: Software cause connection abort

Post by edza » Sat May 21, 2016 7:58 pm

I'm getting this error when connecting ssh w/ putty.
I was able to successfully connect and work the tutorials up until about a few days ago.
Just recently, I would connect do about 2-3 quiz/questions and the connection would time out.
I'd then 'switch off', 'switch on' connect SSH with successful login. Do a few (2-3) quiz/questions
and get disconnected again. Now, every time I try to connect w/ putty I get "Network Error: Software caused connection abort"
Please let me know if there is something I need to do on my end to get up and running again.
Thank you

Nothing has changed at my end.
If restarting putty doesn't help then there is not much which can be done.
I guess the timeout is at your end... Maybe a bad network, bad ISPs, or a nat cache in your router which is too small...
Sorry
