I'm trying in vain to reach DSL box from another computer.
I try samba and ssh. All the same. The fact that the output is the same for both might suggest that there is sth wrong with my DSL settings. What should I verify?

Thank you

If you search the this forum, you'll find a post from Roberts on how to get ssh running on dsl to connect two machines.

In the case of samba, do you have samba installed and configured on dsl?

Do you have a firewall extension loaded?

thank you for your replies

I'll go to see about ssh and as to samba
it's because on dsl samba should be started under root not under user. When started under root the connection is available
