Would like to set up SSH on a Windows computer|
Any ideas about why my sessions end after about 30 seconds?
The message is "Server unexpectedly closed network connection".

Do you log in? Or does it time out after 30 seconds of trying to log in?
It accepts the name for nancybuttons.com, but not the password. (I've tried both my new dreamhost password and what I think the old password was for /admin.)

Those don't have an overlap with the password -- the users for admin (user managed), dreamhost (dreamhost managed, account setup password, linked to an email address), and ssh/ftp users (dreamhost managed) are entirely separate even if they share the same name.
Confusing, I know.

I use PUTTY myself. You're on DH - do you have a Shell account?
Go to panel.dreamhost.com, log in, go to Users:Manage users, make sure that the user account you want to use is a "Shell" account. If you need to, use "edit" to change the password to something you'll remember.
There's nothing wrong with Putty, then. That's something about the far side.
