If you want to know what computer you're connected to, use the "hostname" command. That'll tell you the host name of the computer you're logged into.

ssh will only ask you about "Permanently added the ip to (RSA) to the to the list of known hosts" till you answer yes. Seeing this usually means you've made a successful SSH connection, bout you haven't connected to the server till it completes the authentication process.

To connect to any machine, it must be running an sshd server (sudo apt-get install sshd), and the ssh port (22) must not be blocked (typically on installing sshd, port 22 is unblocked).

Then just issue:

ssh remoteuiserid@remotehostnameorIP
or:
ssh -X remoteuiserid@remotehostnameorIP
if you're wanting to run X11 apps from your remote machine and have them appear on your desktop as if running locally... thought a little sluggish to respond to user commands and screen updates...

Can you help with this problem?
