I am trying to connect Raspberry Pi with my laptop so that I may use my laptop mouse, screen and keyboard but its giving me error
Network error: Connection timed out
These are the steps I have followed to connect raspberry pi to my laptop using putty
Power on the Raspberry PI and inserted one end of Ethernet cable to Raspberry Pi's
RJ-45 jack and other end to my PC's Ethernet Port.
Connected My PC with internet via WiFi and modified the Wi-Fi properties as shown.
- Checked the IP of my network adapters by entering
ipconfig command in the cmd.
This is the screenshot to show active networks:
- Then I scanned all the IP Addresses of my Ethernet network use advanced IP scanner
- Then I entered the IP address in the puTTY and clicked open
- After some time puTTY give an error
Network error: Connection timed out.
- I have already enabled SSH from raspberry pi preferences.
- After reading answer of this question, I ping the IP of my Raspberry PI in which I was shown error there.

You appear to be attempting to use Internet Connect Sharing (ICS) on Windows to connect the Pi.
This works - to give internet access to the Pi.
Unfortunately this can not be used to provide
VNC access to the Pi. You can have EITHER ICS OR
ssh - not BOTH.
If you want to use
ssh you have to disable ICS.
You would be better to connect the Pi to your router.

Same thing for me. My PC was on 5 GHz band, Pi on 2.4 GHz band of router. Moved PC to 2.4 GHz, now I can Putty and CMD Ping to Pi ip.
