I can SSH to myself on both the 'bot and the workstation, but not one to another. What would prevent ssh from working over WiFi? Ping works all 4 ways.

What is the error that is shown? Are you specifying the correct names for ssh?

It works!

had to ssh turtlebot@turtlebot-0170 (and turtlebot as password) and ssh alan@alan-desktop (and my password).

I had been trying: ssh (sample) I thought "Mervin" was just the IP.

Thanks all!

What do you mean by ssh to yourself? Is it "ssh localhost"? If so, then I guess you have ssh server installed.

Do you access remote mashine with hostname or IP? If hostname, try using IP address instead. You can get them with

ifconfig wlan0

I don't know if this is the appropriate place to ask this question, but have you installed openssh-server in both machines?
