SSH oddity


So I have my new Dell Latitude 2100 (toy) on my network running Ubuntu 9.10 as delivered. I added openssh and the service is running. I can connect to the machine from another using Nautilus or Gnome Commander over ssh. However, I cannot connect from a shell(?)
Quote:
ken@taylor12:~$ ssh taylor13
ssh: connect to host taylor13 port 22: Connection timed out
Quite bizarre - any ideas?

Firestarter shows a connection from taylor12 to taylor13 on port 22 - the Gnome Commander connection over which I am currently transferring some files.

TIA,

Ken

Are you transferring the files at the same time you are trying to log in via the shell? While that is permissible, if you are maxing out your bandwidth with the file transfer, that could cause the other ssh connection to take too long to be established. (Thus the time out.)

Thanks CoderMan, that might have something to do with it. Also my POS DLINK DIR-615 router may well be the source of the problem. It has dropped out several times while copying some significant files from the netbook back to my desktop. I looked at the reviews on newegg.com and it seems that this router is prone to do so especially when using wireless connections. The hard wired connections are reported to be fine. Just what you want on a WIRELESS router. Duh!

I will be hooking the netbook in to a wired port and see what happens. Then I will fall back from WPA to WEP security and see if that helps.

And I will probably be trashing the DIR-615. Any suggestions for a good wireless router? The LINKSYS WRT54GL and Rosewill RNX-GX4 have good reviews. The Rosewill is only $30 which is half the price of the Linksys.

Or I may hang the DIR-615 onto my old reliable DI-604 wired router and use it just as an access point - except that that means another power dog house cluttering up the works ans sucking parasitic power.

Oh well - end of rant.

Ken

I have no expertise whatsoever on wireless routers, I'm afraid. I can only say that I have a Belkin N router that has served quite reliably for many months now, and it provides a very good range.

I don't have much experience with wireless routers either. And I am not really thrilled with the experience I am gaining.
