Thanks for the help. I'll give that a try. Regarding the loopback, the default
route configuration for a fedora box includes
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
That means that 127.0.0.5 should go through the "lo" interface. I confirmed that
telnet 127.0.0.5 22
and got back the ssh prompt for that box.....
Again, I'll give your suggestions a try. Thanks for responding.
