If pinging/ssh over a local network fails, this is usually due to a firewall, yes?

If so I'm not excited at the prospect of messing with the router/firewall settings...

@elbeejay If you mean two devices on the same local network, no. That usually is an issue with one of the devices, or possibly the switch if it's managed.


@elbeejay An exception to that is of they're on the same local network, but on different subnets with the router routing between them.
