I have two pcs on a network, one have address with username bakerally,

however when I'm trying ssh bakerally@ , it says

ssh: connect to host port 22: No route to host

even though I tried to disable firewall using this command

sudo ufw disable

did you install openssh_server apt-get install openssh_server on the host? – kobaltz Jan 14 '12 at 14:54

Sounds like a networking issue. Can you ping If your host IP is in the 192.168.1.X range, look at the subnet masks. If it is in a different network, you probably have a gateway/routing issue.

no, its on the same network because i can ping from both PCs – Noor Jan 14 '12 at 15:27
@Noor: "No route to host" means you have a networking issue or mistyped the address. – RedGrittyBrick Jan 14 '12 at 15:46
