Yes I believe that is what is happening.

No the problem is that even when I can connect to the internet on both machines, they cant connect to each other.

I cant even ping though... If it is only a port issue, I should be able to configure the Windows laptop to listen on a different one... How would I find out which ports are open?

Not sure OS is relevant, but laptop is Windows 8 Pro, desktop Ubuntu 13.10.

Sorry that part might not be relevant or confusing. The captive portal is not the issue as such. I am logged in on both machines, and can ssh out. They just can't talk to each other, which is what I am trying to achieve.

comment Does full-disk encryption on SSD drive reduce its lifetime?
dm-crypt. But I thought it was more a theoretical issue - I used to keep a few GB outside the encrypted partition free so they could be used by the drive for cycling. The user of course sees the free space - I was just not sure the drive does, because the drive gets the data already encrypted.

Maybe I am incorrect in this, but I thought with FDE, if I have a 100 GB file system, the whole 100 GB are filled with data, even if only 20 GB are used really - the SSD always thinks its full. It can't distinguish empty space from used space - that happens higher up. Maybe I am wrong?

comment Does full-disk encryption on SSD drive reduce its lifetime?
I am slightly confused. I always thought the max writes were per block, and if the disk is unencrypted, the disk smartly cycles through all free space in deciding where to write, spreading the writes evenly across all free space. With FDE, the whole disk looks to be in use, hence can't be cycled, hence there are a lot more reads and writes for sectors that change frequently which results in faster wear. Is that not correct?
