hi all the world.
i am a beginner in linux technology.
i installed centos 5.2 on HP server.
i need to give external access to my server.so other users out of my loval network can connect to via SSH.
in my local network all is well.
but when other users (out of my local network) try to access the could not.
please show me how to give access to my serevr via ssh.
that doesn't seem to address to OP... you got it the wrong way round.
What is the "outside" here? Internet? If so it sounds like you'll need a nat on your internet facing devices to route traffic for port 22 into the server, but you've provided so little information it's hard to suggest much of use.
You are kidding aren't you? The OP needs to make sure that the firewall isn't blocking port 22, but don't tell him to shut it off.
Why would you need to run the local firewall assuming that this server is in a protected network? There is virtually no information to go on and it is likely that this person will not know what to do. So in the interest of ruling out that as a problem, it should be disabled.
