(I'm a newbie to Linux)
I am trying to SSH into my desktop computer which is running ubuntu. When I SSH into it using Putty and Virtual Box on my lap top it works. I just type ssh ip address (then I enter a password and it works).
However when I try to use putty and do the same command line on my lap top at work, or other computers, I can't connect. My desktop computer and my lap top are using the same router and are in the same place - if that matters.
Also, (this is going to sound stupid) I thought my IP was 192.168.1.101 and that is what I use to SSH into my desktop computer and since it works I thought that was it's IP address. However, I see that same IP address in a lot of help stuff when searching around for answers. Is that not my IP..is it just an example or something? Is the only reason why the SSH works with that IP because I am SSHing into a a computer on the same router?
So confused! And I know it's probably so simple..so thanks in advance!
