I now have my RPi installed as a headless server with .Remote Desktop Viewer' providing the VNC connection. This workes as advertised and I am quite happy with it.
A problem arises when I try to SSH between the RPi and the other two computers on my LAN. SSH between the other two presents no problems.
When I try to SSH the RPi it asks for a password which I enter and then it freezes. No input is possible and control C does not escape the situation. The same thing happens when I SSH from the RPi screen.
I thought perhaps the SSH service had not started so a ran 'sudo service ssh start' but still had the same problem.
I'm probably missing something obvious??
