Generic Linux Device ssh timeout

  • Hi,

    I have a raspberry pi 3 connected to my local network. I can reach it via Putty (Desktop) and via the Qtcreator (Devices - generic linux device) on my laptop. But on my desktop the connection times out with the error message: SSH connection failure: Timeout waiting for reply from server.

    I already reinstalled Qt and deleted the folders in Appdata.
    also increased timeout time to 100 seconds still timeout. On my laptop it barely takes a second.

    desktop Win 7
    qt Creator 4.3 and 4.2
    Qt 5.8 and 5.9

    laptop win 10
    qt 5.8 creator 4.2

    Thanks for the help.
