> When you ssh/telnet into a host, are you doing it by hostname or ip? If
you are just doing it by hostname, try doing it by ip - some routers can be
very glitchy (e.g. homehub 3) with assigning ip addresses to hostnames.
Always by IP addr - my machine doesn't map to a name (because I run ubuntu
instead of Windows...).
