    ssh

    I'm trying to ssh between to laptops to transfer files between them. One is an HP with 10.1o and the other is an Alienware with 11.10 beta. I can ssh from the HP to the alienware, but it doesn't work in reverse. Each has the other's rsa_pub key in the authorized key files. When I try from the alienware to the HP nothing happens.

    Any Ideas?

    Re: ssh

    Do you have openssh-server installed and running on "HP"?

    Can you ping "HP"?

    Define "nothing happens"... Times out?

    Check if you don't have any iptables rules blocking it:
    iptables -L

    Or another firewall

    Can you ssh from the HP machine to itself?

    ssh localhost

    Apparently it was a firewall setting on the HP.

    Thanks everyone
