    Oh, mang.

    For some reasons, both Terminal and CyberDuck don't work anymore. Both got some errors and as for CyberDuck, it says like, "kextimeout 30000 mx expired" ...I tried reinstalling BossPrefs and SBSettings, still no luck. What to do to fix this annoying problem?

    Oh, manggg.

    what happens when you try from the terminal? are you typing

    ssh user@ip?

    Remote login needs to be turned on in a mac

    What are you trying to SSH to? A server? A computer of your own?

    Computer of my own, yes. And wait, what is a remote login?

    I typed in: ssh root@192.168.1.70 in Terminal and the response was:

    Internet is actually active both on computer and iPhone. This kind of problem never actually occurred until today. 0__o

    the computer your trying to ssh into, is the sshd process running? what kind of operating system is on the destination computer?

    :O I'm not sure if I understand your questions.

    SSH process running... yes, I think so. It keeps just giving errors and timeouts. As for the computer, Mac 10.5.5

    Question marks. Did I answered them correctly? :O

    So it's another mac and the remote log on is turned on? There is no firewall that has activated it's self?

    Have you rebooted the machine your trying to ssh into?

    On the target computer, try running

    ssh localhost

    You should see something like

    Versailles:~ bluerevolution$ ssh localhost
    Password:
    [enter your password]
    Last login: Sat Jan 10 17:28:30 2009
    Versailles:~ bluerevolution$


    If you don't provide [user]@[server] but only give [server] it'll default to the username you're currently connected with on your own computer.

    That would be a great test to see if the sshd daemon is running Nice! Learn something new everyday

    Is the target machine a Mac? Try stopping and restarting the remote login feature in the sharing preference pane.

    I thiiiiiiink I know what happened!

    :O

    Earlier, I tried using my sister's laptop which is a Windows. Done downloading "WinSCP" there and... it kept saying "connection failed" too. So, basically... it has to do with the Internet connection, I think. It surely showed that they are "active" and probably they are actually not fullyyy active?

    Oh, manggg.

    I think I gotta give this up and wait to see until tomorrow or something. And thank you all for your help! I appreciate it, reallyyy. Sorry for the troubles. >__<
