Re: How to re-enable ssh logins

This has been a very busy thread, so I'll throw in my 2 cents as well.

1) Each time you have connected to "pod" via hostname. In the logs I see "Connecting to pod [] port 22" Is this the actual IP of "pod"?

2) Can you ssh "from pod" "to pod" that is, while logged into the local console, can you initiate an ssh session back to the box? This may help narrow down any network related problems and let you concentrate on the service itself.

connect back to the originating machine (lion).

I'm beginning to think Protocase has come up with a very subtle and
little known way to lock down ssh. I'd sure like to know what they've
