    When I type in ssh togerland.com it takes forever to get a response and once i do it already timed out :( How come? If i use bootcamp and use putty it connects instantly. What could be wrong?

    I'm new to SSH but don't you have to have to type "SSH username@togerland.com" where username is your username? Or do you not need a username?

    What's the error? I found that when I finally got the command right it took two tries before it let me in...

    Works for me (although I don't have an account so I don't get very far).

    You can try "ssh -v togerland.com" and ssh will spew out all sorts of breadcrumbs describing every step of the process. Seeing what succeeds and where it actually fails can be informative. Feel free to paste the output of "ssh -v" back here if you want help reading it.

    You only need to specify a username if your username on the remote machine is different from your local username. Alternately, you can put the username in your ssh config file so ssh just automagically uses the correct one.
