Re: Allowing access to a newly installed machine

Are you connecting via LAN or from the Internet?

If your trying to connect from within the LAN, try adding the host for your
other box(s) to the /etc/hosts file and restart your network or reboot.

Also have you checked all your settings on the client side if your using
windows and making sure your not using something that might not be
supported?  I use SecureCRT and just select the ssh1 option, add host and
login and that's it and it connects.  If your using ssh2, you have to change
the ssh server setting to standard or otherwise it won't connect.

Oh, on a side note, I would select "no firewall" on future installs of
wolverine or future official release until you either know exactly what
rules are set or you make your own from scratch.

Maybe you even might reinstall just for heck of it without firewall to
compare since nothing has been done on the box yet.
