Before I called BellSouth, where they had me reset my ADSL modem and unplug and replug cables and both modem and network router, I tried using “vi” to edit the above mentioned file. As I could not see anything to edit, and soon used “:qa!” to exit.
Now I get an error message when trying to login via SSH:
The host ‘xx.xxx.xx.xxx’ is unreachable.
The host may be down, or there may a problem with the network connection.
Sometimes such problems can also be caused by a misconfigured firewall"
