I have been asked to setup a lab with 1 PC (fedora 18 OS) and 4 SGI (IRIX 6.5 OLD OS). I am using a switch to connect them to university's network, and I asked tech guys to assign static IPs to them. Now I have statics assigned and I can ping all the machines, but I can't use SSH or FTP for a remote access. Do I need to make any configuration?
You trivially have to start the services (see
netstat -alnp). And you have to see that these services are not blocked by a firewall (see
iptables -L -nv).
You need to install or check if ssh and ftp server is running on each box and it is not getting blocked by any firewall rules.
/etc/init.d/vsftpd status and /etc/init.d/ssh status
temporarily disable firewall , if it is running. /etc/init.d/iptables stop
