To connect via PuTTY I'm guessing you want to use SSH? With SLES12 the
easiest way is to run "yast services-manager", enable sshd, then run
"yast firewall" and allow Secure Shell Server.

start : systemctl start sshd.service
(probably rcsshd start also works)

assume you want to start it at every boot: yast2 services-manager and enable sshd

if you still cannot connect: yast2 firewall --> "Allowed Services" add "Secure Shell Server"


you could have enabled it during install as well.
