Connection timed out


I have a Linux machine that has the ssh daemon running, and am trying to
access it via my windows xp machine with cygwin.

I can ping the linux machine ip address, or nslookup the linux machine
from cygwin. I can also do the reverse with the linux machine to

When I try
~# ssh myuserid@linux-ip-address or ~# ssh linux-ip-address

it hangs for 15-20 seconds, then gives me the following error:
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out

I've been through the information on
<> manual pages, and don't see anthing that
points me in the right direction.

Any ideas?
