I have two Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 boxes on my network that cannot connect to one another, nor can other computers connect to them using ssh.
However, I can connect to other computers on the network (Ubuntu 6.06LTS and RedHat 9.0) from these two boxes.
When I run ssh -vvv firstname.lastname@example.org, I get:
OpenSSH_4.6p1 Debian-5ubuntu0.1, OpenSSL 0.9.8e 23 Feb 2007
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to 192.168.0.83 [192.168.0.83] port 22.
and the computer just sits there, does not time out after even a couple of minutes.
The /etc/ssh/sshd_config files are what came out of the box. I have checked on this forum and in Google and have not found anything that seems to deal with this problem.
Same result whether firestarter is running or not.
