Apologies if this is not the appropriate section for this question...
I'm a newbie as far as dealing with networking issues. Until last week, I had no problem using ssh to connect to my work Mac from my laptop Mac. Then I installed an OS update (to OS X 10.6.8). Now, when I try to ssh, I get "timeout" errors.
I am pretty sure this is not a firewall problem. In my System Preferences, I have set my firewall to allow incoming ssh connections.
ssh -v me@whereIam.myWork.myCountry
OpenSSH_5.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8r 8 Feb 2011 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to whereIam.myWork.myCountry [123.456.789.10] port 22. ssh: connect to host whereIam.myWork.myCountry port 22: Operation timed out
which makes no sense to me at all! If anyone could suggest what the problem might be, I would be extremely grateful. I miss working from my sofa.
