I have a laptop running SUSE 9.1 and a desktop with Arch Linux 0.6. I
want to transfer a bunch of files from the desktop to the laptop. I
have made sure the sshd daemon is running on both boxes and both boxes
can ping each other (connected through a Netgear router).
However, when I open Konq on the laptop and type
'fish://username@xxxxxxxxxxx' on the laptop, I get an error message
saying 'Could not connect to host at XXX.XXX.X.X (IP of the desktop

How can I fix this?


Are you running a firewall? You may not have masquerading setup properly, or a problem with allowing http access.
