Why can't I use the terminal any more with Lion?

At work, there is a MacPro that I routinely use remotely via SSH, but have only sporadic physical access to. Someone else upgraded it to Lion (from Snow Leopard), and since then, I am unable to use the terminal locally or to log into it via SSH - in either case, the process immediately terminates / disconnects. Other user accounts on the same machine are not affected. What could be going on?

How to set up LAN-only SSH on the D-Link TM-G5240?

I have a D-Link TM-G5240 wireless router, and I want to set it up to allow SSH traffic strictly over the LAN; i.e., no access from outside. (I don't envision ever needing to SSH into our home network from anywhere else, so I'd like to keep anyone else from being able to do so.) What's the best way to go about it? Keep in mind, I'm a networking novice.

Can you tunnel via SSH to access Gmail via IMAP in Outlook when the ports are blocked?

I like to think of myself as somewhat of a power user when it comes to mail servers, SSH, Gmail, and Outlook, but this one has me stumped! I use Outlook for both work and personal e-mail, but while on the network at work our ports are pretty locked down. How might I access my Gmail account via IMAP in Outlook while on a locked-down network? Ports 25, 110, 143, 587, 993, etc., are all blocked. In order to access personal e-mail, I connect via SSH (PuTTY) to my DreamHost mail server and tunnel POP/SMTP (ports 110 and 25) traffic over that SSH session. Is there any way I could use that SSH connection to tunnel to Gmail's servers for IMAP access as well? If not using that tunnel, is there another way? I can access Gmail through a web browser, but my objective is to be able to collect all my e-mail in Outlook as well. Thanks!

packet loss wreaks more havoc than it ought to on ssh sessions

packet loss wreaks more havoc than it ought to on ssh sessions... even when connectivity returns, the session can take take a dozen seconds to return to interactivity. it's often faster to reconnect with a new session than to wait for the established session to recover. frustrating and distracting. has anyone else seen and solved this issue? some kind of retry/timeout/backoff adjustment or something?
