On the console, from fedora:
will initiate a session to the other machine's sshd.

From My comp (
will do vice-versa.

For this to work, you need in both boxes the ssh server installed and running.
In my suse box I can start/stop sshd with
rcsshd stop
rcsshd start
Try to find out what command do the same in redhat.
