Re: ssh problems



Kapil:
I feel you are suggesting me the right way.

Because it is fast, I have reconstructed the keys and
reestablished the ssh connection between the two
machines.

Then I entered the config of the the Zyxel Prestige
660H (cable connection ADSL) via http, giving the
password that I used at the first connection.

DHCP shows a table with 3 columns and two rows

Host Name / IP Address / MAC Address

with data for the two machines (IP address corresponds
to "inet addr" as from "ifconfig", MAC Addess has the
hexadecimals correctly, while Hostame is empty. I
tried to put in the "hostame" of the two machines,
though it was as write forbidden. I operated from
Gnome/Iceweasel as user. Is that a problem of
permission or should I look elsewhere in the router
config?

Thanks
francesco
