And thank you for the information about Vista.

After some finger trouble, and guidance from this list, I finally got 
back to where I was last year. One laptop is triple booted and under one 
Linux distribution the service is sshd while under ubuntu it's ssh. The 
difference seems to be important.

Laptop A has Xubuntu installed and connects to itself and laptop B but 
only if I have booted Kubuntu on laptop B. If the other Linux 
distribution is booted then I get an error message that reads:
"Couldn't read packet: Connection refused by peer". When I previously 
had a working home network I had yet another Linux distribution 
installed. I think I might reduce this system to a double booted one.
