I'm having trouble using SSH to gain access to my Ubuntu 9 machine (extreme linux neophyte). I have the Ubuntu server and OpenSSH installed, as well as Samba on one machine, and I'm trying to access this machine, via SSH, from my Mac--which is running OS X 10.5.6.
I am trying to SSH into the Ubuntu machine, so I can SFTP files from the Samba server onto my Mac, (not sure if that's the most efficient way, but I think it'll work).
However, when I try and SSH into the Ubuntu machine, the SSH command just times out. I don't think it's a port issue, because from what I understand, Ubuntu doesn't install a firewall by default.
I feel like I'm missing a simple step, but I can't seem to figure it out.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
