How do I enable or allow ssh to accept incoming connections in 9.10. I can use this machine to connect other machines on my net. but this machine refuses all incoming attempts. Any suggestion woul be appreciated, nu2ubuntu-9.10amd64

While I don't think this is ubuntuone-client related, I suspect that you don't have openssh-server installed.

Try installing openssh-server via apt-get or synaptic and see whether you can login afterwards.

openssh-server is not installed on default on desktop installations and comment here whether it works now.

Oh, my bad, I had Launchpad open on one desktop and ubuntuone on the other, my apologies, thanks for the info, nu2ubuntu.

There are lots of Linux users who don't care how the kernel works, but
only want to use it. That is a tribute to how good Linux is.
