SSH blocks my Windows machine
At home, I have a PC running Debian. At work, I have a PC running Windows XP, and I use SSH Secure Shell Client for all my SSH needs. But here's the deal: when I try to SSH into my home (Linux) computer from work (Windows), I get no respect. I mean, it doesn't even ask me for a password. It's just "The server responded 'no further authentication methods available'" after a few seconds of trying. And I have both Public Key and Password authentication methods allowed in my connection settings.
Now I can access my Linux box through SSH, but I have to first connect to another machine (I use a UNIX server at my school, in Connecticut) and then connect from there to my home machine, in Florida. From the UNIX server, ssh firstname.lastname@example.org works just fine. But the 2000-mile trip to sunny New England and back plus two bouts of enrypting/decrypting are not at all friendly to performance.
At home, in my /var/log/auth.log file, there's something to the effect of "unauthorized connection attempt from my.work.ip.address" for the first time I tried to connect and the two computers traded public keys. Other than that there are no records from my connect attempts.
Can you think of any reason this would happen? Any pointers at all would be cool; I'm willing to learn as much as I have to on my own.
