So, I dig around and find Terminal. Took a bit, as the beast is swapping horribly. But, on the other hand, it is running with only 64M of RAM and the minimum's 128. (I remember when 64K was a lot, but that's just me being an old fogey) Telnet over to my linux box because SSH doesn't work. Telnet. Yech. That works though, and I can fire up pine just fine. Then try and telnet back. No dice. SSH? Apparently not.
Turns out this box has all inbound services disabled. That wouldn't be a problem (it's really a good thing all things considered) if it was easy to reenable the damn things. It looks like telnet's doable, but I'd as soon not. And sshd doesn't even want to fire up by hand.
Grrr. No different from any other unix box--they're all a stupid pain to set up the first time--but I'd hoped it'd be easier...
