View Full Version : [ubuntu] ssh into back to my mac from ubuntu

October 26th, 2010, 01:28 AM
hi guys,

i have successfully ssh'd into one of my other macs from my macbook pro by using

ssh -6 "login@computername.firstname\.lastname.members.mac .com."

a little annoying because my mobileme username is firstname.lastname.

anyway, i am now trying to use the same command from my ubuntu machine, and i keep getting the error

ssh: could not resolve hostname computername.firstname\\.lastname.members.mac.com. :No address associated with hostname

(there are supposed to be two \'s between firstname.lastname in the above line.)

any ideas as to what is going on? i am wondering if it has something to do with the \ i have to use to delimit the . in my mobileme username.
