I have a dsl modem(Alcatel 530i)
I have connected it to a switch and from there with cables to my win pc and my linux pc
My linux pc has winxp pro sp1(no firewall) and my linux pc suse 9,3 pro(with suse's firewall)
I want to connect remotely to my linux pc
I have downloaded PuTTY and set up suse firewall so that ssh can have access
I have also samba set up and running ok
Using PuTTY i can get connected from my win pc to my linux pc using my "local" ip address (10.0.0.1)
I just then wondered if i can connect with putty from another computer (for instance an internet cafe or any other pc which is connected to the internet) to my linux pc
I went to www.whatismyip.com
and i found out the ip of my linux pc
I've entered it to putty but i get "Network error : Connection refused"
I've also shut down my firewall but I still have the same problem
What should i do???
