I have been able to do this in the past but doing it now on Spectrum has been a head-scratching effort in frustration. Has anybody set this up -- specifically an ssh server that you can access internally on the wireless?

    Hi @apswartz, welcome to our community!

    That's not something I can provide assistance with, but other users might be able to help if you provided information on the problem you are having such as software used, error messages, etc.

    I have a computer running Fedora. I have enabled the sshd server and have opened port 22. Using other computers, I can see the computer's IP (it is 192.168.1.56 - which should be static and not dynamic). The results from my windows computer with the arp command produces the following...

    PS C:\Users\apswa> arp -a

    Interface: 192.168.1.2 --- 0x13

     Internet Address   Physical Address   Type

     192.168.1.1      4c-19-5d-39-24-c5   dynamic

     192.168.1.56     e8-6f-38-94-d9-cb   dynamic

     192.168.1.90     1c-53-f9-22-f2-88   dynamic

     192.168.1.255     ff-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff   static

    But I cannot ssh into the computer. I get...

    PS C:\Users\apswa> ssh apswartz@192.168.1.56

    ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.56 port 22: Connection timed out

    Also, pinging the computer (or any other computer on the network) results in...
