On Mac Lion (10.7.3), when you try 'ssh' it times-out. You know you have the proper login and host parameters because it works from other computers (say Linux or Windows putty, or even running putty on the same Mac!)
I do not know, but it appears that the Mac Lion SSH handles UTF-8 character sets in the manner that the remote side do not like.
There is nothing wrong with your network or network provider. Something wrong is introduced in Lion.
Essentially finding a line in /etc/ssh_config file that says LANG LC_* should just be commented out. If you do not know exactly what I am talking about the following is the steps to accomplish this.
- Open Terminal
- sudo vim /etc/ssh_config
- Supply your password
- Type in below, including the first /
- /LANG LC_
- This will take you to the line where the problem is
- Hit the left arrow key several times, until you are at the start of the line.
- Type i to insert
- Type # to comment out the line
- Press ESC to exit the insert mode
- Type wq (means write quit) to save the file and exit vim
- Now close the Terminal, Re-launch it and try ssh again
