Awkward problem: for some reason, I can't reach our Linux server by SSH. Everything else works. Since it doesn't have a graphics card (I had to remove it to make room for another NIC) I can only control it "blindly" by typing on the keyboard.
By typing blindly I managed to eliminate the firewall as an issue by deactivating it. I rebooted the server but SSH doesn't seem to come up at all.
Now I managed to initiate a SSH connection from the server to my workstation. Is there any way I can hijack that connection to get a terminal on the server that I can control from my workstation? Using a tunnel doesn't work since the SSH daemon doesn't start at all.
The server is an Ubuntu 8.04 LTS box, my workstation is Ubuntu 11.04. On the server, the following software is running:
- Apache with mod_php
