Remote access to SUSE linux desktop suddenly ceases
Hi. I have a Dell Precision 360 running SUSE 10.1 linux. While I sometimes use the machine locally, I enjoy the ability to ssh into it from my laptop whether at the office or at home. Today, at some point, while trying to ssh in using cygwin, I got the 'connection timed out' message. On the machine, I could ssh localhost just fine. When I ping the machine, I get a 'request timed out' message. Although I haven't had a chance to check yet, would there be any reason why the firewall settings would magically change such that this would happen? Anybody have a clue as to what might be going on? All I did today was mess with some flexnet license settings on some unrelated software and reboot the system. I never touched anything related to the network.
Thanks in advance for any help provided.
