problem ssh from mac os x

i was trying to ssh to my linux box in a terminal under os x 10.2

when i did "ssh <linux box ip>"

it just prompt me for password, (skip the user name)
i assume my os x box is assume i have one same account on my linux box, what additional opinion i can use to get ssh prompt with a username first?

try this: (without the `'s of course)

` ssh -C <username>@<linux box ip> `

If you have an X server installed on OS X, you can start it up, and launch, from an Xterm, ` ssh -X -C <username>@<linux box ip> ` and from there you'll be able to use your Linux box's X programs as well!

Hope this helps.
