    Hi, I just recently set up an SSH server on my Linux Mint desktop so I could test it out before I actually create a server and whenever I type ssh [ip address] into my Mac's terminal it just gives me a completely blank prompt. I've also tried typing ssh [myusername]@[ip address]What am I doing wrong?

    This also happened on my Windows 7 PC when using Putty.
