It is definitely a problem with this particular machine. Other machines 
work just fine sshing to this and other hosts. This machine cannot ssh 
to any other machine, although they all resolve just fine using dig, 
host, ping, etc. I think it has to be an ssh problem, but the ssh 
configs are the same as on my other machines. I am going to check to see 
if ssh is a different version from my other machines. But now the 
machine seems to be down entirely, so that will have to wait until I go 
into work tomorrow.
