I'm not very good at these things but I set up an SSH server on my home computer and connect to it through putty, it seems to run fine but sometimes I have problems with the error "software cause connection abort" coming up a lot. As soon as I get it I can reconnect again but its very annoying. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Home computer is windows vista, client is windows 8. It seems to happen no matter what I do but more often when the tunnel is being used. Only software open when it last happened was a poker client.

Any ideas?

Does your SSH connection crash or the whole computer?
