    Apologies if this has been addressed before.
    I'm trying to connect my Mac (Mojave) to a Windows 10 PC via SSH, however I keep getting "Operation timed out" errors.
    I can ping and ssh myself and other Macs but when I try to ping any PC I get this kind of error

    ——————————————————————
    Request timeout for icmp_seq 0
    Request timeout for icmp_seq 1
    Request timeout for icmp_seq 2
    Request timeout for icmp_seq 3
    ^C
    --- 137.44.4.153 ping statistics ---
    5 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss
    ——————————————————————

    I would be very grateful if someone could point out my problem!

    Did you install some sort of SSH server on the PC? SSH server isn't a functionality built into Windows.
    As for the failure to ping, it may be that the PCs have a firewall running that blocks pings.

    A SSH server is set up on the PC (Other PCs are able to SSH connect to mine) and I've disabled the firewalls on both PC and Mac.

    EDIT: My colleague's mac (El capitan) is able to connect to the PC so it seems the problem is coming from my mac

    Solved: The PC was on the eduroam wifi and it seems that was the problem. Once connected to the eduroam ehternet, I could ssh it.
