I'm running SLED 10.1. sshd is running (I can ssh to localhost) and I've

computers (even using their IP's). (I can access these computers from
another laptop running Fedora 8 through the same wireless router.)

How can I determine what is going wrong? I've tried disabling the
firewall completely (although it always seems to come on by itself) to
see if it was blocking ssh. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
tcptraceroute could tell you where the packets are being dropped.


Red herring. Packets are not being dropped. He said he could
connect thru the same router with other machines.

That doesn't mean the packets aren't being dropped when coming from this particular machine. I could demonstrate selective packet dropping with iptables and a few test machines, but you get the point, right?

At any rate, he later mentioned that he does get through, but that the other end is apparently unable to process the login attempt. I advised searching through the logs on the system that he can't reach from the SLED box.
