[OpenIndiana-discuss] ssh sessions timing out?

I did check the various logs last time and I didn't see anything (then
again, depending in the message, not sure I'd have recognized it.)  I will
fire up wireshark and an ssh session and see what turns up.  Thanks...

Since it's saying it's a network error, you might want to start by
tracing packets on the network (using something like wireshark) to
figure out which side is initiating the disconnect, and how it's doing
so -- whether by FIN or RST.

Another thing to check would be system logs.

Many kinds of problems can cause a failure like this, including having a
duplicate IP address configured somewhere on your network.
