If I enter sftp:// (which is the address of the laptop that I'm 
currently using) into Thunar's address bar then a connection is 
established. This is progress but a connection to itself is not a lot of 

If I enter the address of the other laptop then I get the error message 
"ssh program unexpectedly exited".

I installed the ssh meta package but without any improvement.

Perhaps the other laptop is blocking access, I seem to remember that I 
couldn't connect to this laptop when is was running Vista.
