Right. So I wanted to set up a Paintchat for me an my friends, I've downloaded the files and uploaded them via FTP onto the server I would like to host it on.
This is the tutorial I've been using :

So here's the problem. On the right side with the Putty thing, I've been trying to get it to work, but I can't. I think I'm putting in the right information, but I'm not entirely sure. When I bring up the connection, it comes up with a window a few seconds later stating the server has closed it's connection unexpectedly and it just doesn't type. I've never used Putty before, so I'm not sure what I should be putting in.
If someone could help, that would be great.
It's possible that your host doesn't support SSH. Even some paid hosting plans don't allow that.
Have you tried using the IP address rather than the server's DNS name? You can get the IP address by going into your computer's shell (command prompt) and using the "ping" command.
Yes. I've tries using my IP address for the host as well. (I can;t find it on command prompt though.)
It opens the connection, but Putty won;t let me type inside the box, then the connection times out.
I'm not entirely sure if it supports SSH or not. Funpic doesn't really have a very good page for their plan.
Sorry, Funpic does not support SSH (as well as many other things).
In general, free hosting plans don't allow much more than the most basic FTP, PHP, and MySQL, so shell access of any sort (Telnet and SSH) are almost never supported.
