SSH in local wireless network

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello everybody. I've been using ssh recently to access a schools supercomputer, and that made me wonder if I could somehow do the same between my home machines. I figure that if I get my machines (2) into a wired network I can make them 'see' each other (and interact through ssh), in fact I used to control one PC from another using VNC. Right now what I have at my disposal is two laptops (with wireless network) and a wireless modem with router (one that is also connected to the phone line to get ADSL internet). Of course both laptops can connect to the wireless network, and I wonder, can I use that equipment to access one machine from the other through ssh? I imagine I'd have to use the 'internal' IPs? Thanks, Joe. (HowTos)
