comment ssh connecting timeouts from a to b, but works from a to c, and c to b
Nope, now I got a timeout without touching sshfs. And while I can't get from A to B right now, I can do A->C->B and then connect back from B to A. Weird.

The weird thing this that it seems fine for as long as I don't touch sshfs.

traceroute doesn't quite make it all the way, whether I add the -p/-P args or not (which is how I ran it). It also does not work back from B to A -- so there could be a firewall issue at B's end. And that is with the ssh session is up/remained up for the last 12+ hours.

No, and "eventually" this resolves after maybe 20 or so minutes. But I do not recall adding a configuration on either side that would enforce this behaviour.

I am more concerned about the former. It just sits there at about line 4 under ssh -v and nothing happens. Whereas I can go the alternate route. The odd thing is that the timeout seems to affect all possibly clients on my home network. Yet I had the same NAT setup for many years.

comment Linux date command is 4 minutes slow
Beg to differ. His delta is four minutes so he obviously needs an adjustment and basic ntpclient and ntpdate are fine for that. Besides I did mention ntp to him so aren't we splitting microscopic hairs here?

David, noted but it's my home system and I've been doing it that way for well over a decade. Really no meed for an ntpd instance here.

comment Linux date command is 4 minutes slow
I don't know, you have to check your package docs, or inquire with someone who knows RH/FC/CentOs better. Sometimes installing a package prepares everything yet you may to turn a toggle in a file such as /etc/default/ntpdate.

comment problem with RODBC installation in Ubuntu
FWIW the r-cran-binary is actually built against the other ODBC library in Debian / Ubuntu: unixodbc-dev.

comment problem with RODBC installation in Ubuntu
I fear you are a tad confused between installing RODBC (which is not an issue as we have now found out--you have the binary package and can load it) and using and configuring RODBC which is a different ballgame. Look for previous questions here and on the lists. Also, if your backend is indeed MySQL then you could use RMySQL instead which may well be faster.

comment problem with RODBC installation in Ubuntu
So it is installed. So why do you want to install a second copy outside of the package management system?

comment problem with RODBC installation in Ubuntu
The r-cran-rodbc package is actually on the Ubuntu repos, and not on the CRAN ones. But that README is still gold.

In which case maverick also worked?
