when in sigle user mode,
this will bring up the network,
then log in and do:
where remotebox is the IP address or name of your remote computer
if that is replying, all is fine and you can type:
you might be prompted for "yes/no" if you establish an ssh connect
for the first time. Simply answer "y".
Key in the password and you should be connected to your target.
pls let us know if this worked for you, if not you will have to
get onto the "remotebox" and "enable" ssh.
