I have checked my cables and they seem to be in securely. The lights on my switch show 100 Mb/sec full duplex for the desktop and 10 Mb/sec half duplex for the gateway, which is correct. When I execute a ssh command from either machine the data lights blink on both lines. I also tried substituting a crossover cable for the two cables and switch, but the results were the same.
I have been using ssh to connect this way on these boxes for several months, so I don't see why it should suddenly stop working now, but I will try it, anyway.
I just sent the output of ifconfig from both machines in another post.
