I am trying to connect to one of my sites, which is on shared hosting, using Putty, but i am receiving this error: Network Error:Connection Refused. If i try to connect through ftp connection i am able to connect, but with Putty i can't.
What could be the reason for this?

Sometimes the SSH port is moved to another for security purposes. Have you successfully connected with Putty before? If not, then ask the hosting provider..

Is there any general way to test which of my ports are opened and which closed? Maybe some commands that i can run in command prompt? I have Windows 7 and i am also connected to internet through wireless router.

To test for open ports on a server from the outside you can use nmap, from here: http://nmap.org/

To look for listening ports on a machine while you are on it, you can use netstat command.
