How to securely control another Mac over the internet
Authored by: dcoyle on Jan 28, '06 06:46:01PM

I've been playing around with SSH a little, including this hint which I ultimately got to work. I'm no expert (far from it), but what I found really useful was using Console to see what gets logged - look on both machines. In my case, I had to delete, then re-create keys in /etc. I don't believe they are used at all, but sshd won't work without them.

Not saying I think that's your problem, but there appear to be a lot of things that can go wrong. The copious logging is one of the things I really like about OS X and will get you pointed in the right direction. I hope that someone who actually knows what he is doing reads your post and can help you.
