"Here's a description of my system:
- Home machine: P166, 128MB RAM, running Debian Potato.
- SSH Server 1.2.27
- Remote Machine: PIII 450, 256MB RAM, running NT 4.0.
- SSH Client the windows one by Cedomir Igaly Rev 2.112, with Exceed as XServer
- Net connection: Cable Modem from Rogers@Home (Brampton Canada, near Toronto) (Note: It is one of the new Terayonones which doesn't have an IP address, uses DHCP and SNMP)
Lastly, two pieces of information that I think might be key. First, if I traceroute to my home machine just after the connection dies, I get to the gateway machine for my ISP subnet, but not to my machine. Second, when I used to do this from school a few months ago, on a Solaris 2.7 box, I would often have problems connecting, with the same thing happening with traceroute. However, once I got connected it usually worked fine.
Any ideas, anyone?"
