I have a strange problem, and I am not very familiar with Mac OSX so I am coming here for help.
I have two Mac Minis on a network 192.168.1.*
Mac Mini 1 = 192.168.1.10 Mac Mini 2 = 192.168.1.11
My workstation is on 10.1.10.* VPN on 192.168.2.*
About once every two days or so the Mac Mini 2 stops accepting ssh connections from any network other than it's own. I cannot ping it or anything from my workstation, but if I ssh into Mac Mini 1 and then ssh to Mac mini 2 from there it works and magically I can then ping and ssh from my workstation.
the sshd-config is the same on the two minis. I thought the machines were identical, but I just discovered that Mac Mini 1 is running OSX 10.7.4 and Mini 2 is running OSX 10.7.2. Could that be a clue?
Thanks for taking the time to read and respond!
