Honestly, when I installed Open MPI, I didn't perform any configuration
of the ssh options, as far as I can remember. I'm not sure if someone
else can help you. I can imagine networks being set up incorrectly, but
I can't imagine what incorrect ssh option there would be to prevent one
computer from finding another. In addition to some FAQs, Gus suggested
running a simple example called hello_c.c. Have you tried that?

It is hard to give any suggestions unless you give more information such
as a shortened version of your source code and what is the command line
that you ran mpirun with. It might help if you ran some existing code
(such as http://mpi.deino.net/mpi_functions/MPI_Lookup_name.html), too.
