I am having issues with ssh (or scp) between OSX devices, only on my eero network
I have three macbook pro devices. 2008 model on 10.11.6, 2015 on 10.13.6, and new 2019 on 10.14.6.
While trying to setup the newest device I wanted to scp files from the 2015 to the 2019. But I couldn't get scp or ssh to work on my home eero network not mater what I tried.
So I tried at work and they connect just fine.
More testing on home network finds that this seems to be an eero issue. I have a second network at home (independent network with it's own external WAN IP). It's on a zyxel router and connecting to that device works fine. I can ssh between any of these devices.
Once I return them to the eero network they start failing again.
I also find they can't ping each other.
Each Mac can see the rest of my network. I have several Raspberry Pi devices. Each can be seen, each can be pinged and I can ssh to any of them from any of my OSX macbooks. I can even ssh from one mac to the other if I go through any of the pi devices. SSH to PI and then SSH any of the other macs. No problem. I can also ping the macbooks from any of the pi devices.
So for some reason my eero network is causing issues for peer to peer connections between OSX devices specifically.
I can ssh from any pi to any other pi as well. So it is a OSX specific issue.
Actually it seems to be an apple specific issue. Because I have a terminal app on my iphone which lets me ssh. I can ssh into any pi, but once again I can NOT ssh into my macbooks from my iphone.
I have heard about issues with Apple devices on eero network but they mostly involve issues with connecting to a closer (stronger signal) eero or loss of connection when you roam. I have this issue as well with my iphones, macbooks and ipads. But a simple wifi off/wifi on fixes this issue. I can't find a solution to fix my ability to ssh (or more specifically scp) from one macbook to another on an eero network.
Has anyone else experienced this issue?
Is there a solution?
