Natty is EOL in October (no support and no updates). I suggest you reinstall with Precise (Ubuntu 12.04) . Not only is Precise the latest stable release, it is also LTS (long term support) and is supported all the way to 2017.

Did you install openssh-server on the system?

Andrew, it worked

TQ:)

None of the Ubuntus install openssh-server by default. You were trying to connect to a service that wasn't installed...
