Thanks alot for the tech support on weekdays though ;)

You might be right, although I don't know how to properly test it. All I
could think of was to try a ssh connection from the server to the
client, but that connection attempt hangs forever... strange. I do know
it's not a firewall issue, since:

bash:~# iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination        

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination        

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination        



And I know that sshd is running from this:

bash:~# netstat -putan
tcp6       0      0 :::22                   :::*                   
LISTEN     7778/sshd          


The client machine is a ubuntu edgy machine, pretty standard. I don't
understand what it is that's blocking the connection though, since there
seems to be no firewall between the machines.

Maybe I'll have to ask around the ubuntu forums for some help... unless
there's a linux network specialist here that has an idea what's going on...

thanks again,
