I have a Mandrake 10.0 Official box sitting next to the 10.1 Official and it works just fine connecting to the same ip address. I have performed all updates available via urpmi.
I just solved the same problem on my 2 systems last night
fish uses openssh and requires 3 packages to work:
openssh, openssh-server and openssh-client.
Ffor whatever reason, these 3 packages were installed on my router-firewall but only 1 was installed on my "client". ( my home LAN has only 2 computers: one router-firewall-cups server and one client.One quick way to check that is to type man ssh
So, check first if these 3 RPMs are installed , if they are, then it could be a firewall problem.
