SSH working via IP address, but not host?
This is a fun one (x used in place of real IP's and hostnames):
$ host 134.174.xxx.xx
xx.xx.174.134.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer xxx.xxx.xxx.com.
$ host xxx.xxx.xxx.com
xxx.xxx.xxx.com has address 134.174.xxx.xx
$ nslookup xxx.xxx.xxx.com
$ ssh -p 22 firstname.lastname@example.org
ssh: connect to host xxx.xxx.xxx.com port 22000: Connection timed out
logging in via IP address:
$ ssh -p 22 email@example.com
... works fine.
Any idea what's going on here?
