I use windows 7 home premium x64 and want to connect to a linux server throught a vpn tunnel with Putty (SSH). I set Windows Firewall to block all outbound traffic by default and allow only those which are in my rulelist to pass through.
I allow putty to connect inbound and outbound but i get the message "fatal error ->network error: permission denied". It seems that the Windows Firewall is blocking putty even when i set it to allow.
PS: I found a thread a Vista forum here with the same issue. The support didnt answer, but the user figured the port which is part of the problem. He opened for TCP on port 22 for all outgoing applications. This works, but doesnt fullfill my security policy.
Which application (other than putty) do i need to allow TCP outgoing on port 22 to avoid this error?
