    Calling all SUPERGEEKS! Help with SSH Login from a PC
    Hi guys,
    I'm attempting to access my Mac from a friends PC using SSH.
    I've downloaded and installed Putty on the PC, then entered my Mac's address as:
    ssh my name@my ip address
    and\or
    my name@my ip address (without the 'ssh')

    I get a fairly quick Network Error: Connection timed out.

    My Mac back home is configured with automatic DHCP, and I use DyNS to assign a permanent IP address online, which I'm pretty sure is different from the one my Mac has offered me in System Prefs. Could that be the problem? I haven't turned the Mac off since it offered me an IP address to connect to through SSH.

    Just to update this v. old thread. I've since discovered that I need to set a finger print on both my mac and the pc I wish to use to connect to my mac. I found this great site that goes through it all. I haven't yet tested it out but will post back as soon as i do.
