Fogive me, but I'm extremely new to ruby, and programming in general.
I'm running tcpdump -i en0 host 172.16.1.1 in conjunction of running
this script.It does not appear that that it is even trying to ssh to
this fw. How can I debug this better, to verify my issue is not
net::ssh, but something in the code? Thank you for looking.
