College Campus: PC on ethernet, Laptop on wifi, no static IP, can I still ssh?
I wanted to go ask the guy at the computer department if there was anything in place to prevent my laptop from seeing my PC, but I don't quite know what to ask him.
My laptop is on wifi, and I bought an ethernet cable for my PC. Both have dynamic IP addresses through dhcp.
If the hostname of my PC is george, and the hostname of my laptop is frank, and I use the user 'owner' on both, I should just be able to be in my laptop and type this, right?
owner@frank:~$ ssh owner@george
but I get nothing. I've also tried to ping my laptop from my PC and vice-versa.
Is this because they are on two different interfaces, or is it because the department is blocking something, or do I need to do something to have these two be able to see eachother on the network?
