    2 PC network/ping ok-ssh not [SOLVED]


    very new to networking

    PC 1 Mandriva 2005LE
    eth0 is 3com NIC setup thru Mandrake CC to connect to DSL modem - all OK (auto DHCP)
    eth1 is netgear NIC setup thru Mandrake CC to home net thru lynksis hub to PC 2
    setup static
    hostname name1.mylan
    address 192.168.10.1

    PC 2 Mandrake 10.0
    eth0 is SiS NIC setup thru MCC to home net thru the linksys hub
    setup static
    hostname name2.mylan
    address 192.168.10.2

    each PC is able to ping itself and each other
    I see hub lights indicating activity
    PC1 is able to 'see' PC2 via ssh via Konqueror

    PC2 cannot 'see' PC 1
    error mssg
    an error occurred while loading 192.168.10.1
    could not connect to host 192.168.10.1

    Unless it is related to the problem, I am not concerned about internet sharing right now. I think if I get these 2 PCs to see each other first, then the internet sharing will fall into place.

    I can post some outputs

    any help appreciated
    Thanks

    Are you *positive* that PC 1 has sshd running?

    network

    That seems to have done the trick. Went to MCC and saw that sshd was stopped.

    BTW, if you help anyone else, be advised that when I first learned about networking with a crossover cable, I spent weeks amassing all the network "bibles" , NFS, SMB etc., I was pinging all day long but could never figure out how to share files simply until someone indicated that all I had to do was type
    sftp://<address> into Konqueror !

    Please keep in mind the simple stuff for us newbies (which you did)

    Please be prepared for questions now on internet sharing, using PC1 and the eth0 NIC to DSL modem as a gateway for PC2.
    Thanks
