SSH troubles from within network
I've been sitting here playing around with SSH, since its a brand new concept to me (still kind of a Linux n00b), and im having some problems connecting properly.
Im using a SuSE 10.0 desktop and a Knoppix 5.0.1 Live CD on a laptop. I can SSH from the laptop into the desktop with no problems at all, yet if I attempt to SSH from the desktop into the laptop, i recieve the port 22: Connection refused error.
Both machines are running on the same network from behind a Linksys BEFW11S4 router, with both SuSE's firewall and Knoppix's firewall disabled. I can't figure out why i would be recieving an error like that with no firewalls enabled and both machines operating from within the same network.
When I searched this forum for answers, all relevant threads were created by people recieving the port 22 connection error while trying to SSH in from outside of the network...I hadn't run across a single thread with someone trying to connect from within the same network and still recieving the port 22 connection error.
Would anybody happen to have any ideas as to why im recieving these errors?
Any help is appreciated!
That was the exact problem! I activated the SSH server in Knoppix, and it works fine now.
...wow that was a really n00bish mistake. haha
