Windows 7: SSH connection error using putty

SSH connection error using putty

Hello All,

Wondering if someone can help me out or explain why I'm having problems.

I'm trying to connect to my home ssh server from work using putty so I can forward rdp and website connections. I've been having problems so decided to change the ports on my server to port 80 since it seems most other ports are blocked including port 443. When trying to connect I get the error incoming packet was garbled on decryption. Now I know the outgoing connection works fine as I've checked it in my router logs and it says packet accepted on port 80 from my work ip address. I just cant seem to get it past this point and this error is stopping the ssh tunnel from starting.

Any ideas? I've tested connecting using putty on my home network and everything works fine.

Could this be a firewall issue at my work stopping the incoming packets? Why would this be since I'm using port 80 that allows web traffic?

Thanks for any help/info

Tom
