Help with Port Forwarding for SSH
I am trying to access my home computer via SSH (putty) for remote locations.
I have a redhat 8 box at home with sshd running. I can access it via it's IP Address from other computers on the LAN.
I have a dynu.com domain that points to my wireless router. I am not sure what the lease time my ISP gives me, but I set up dynu utility to refresh every 5 minutes.
Because I am behind a wireless router, I assume I have to enable port 22 (ssh) to forward to my Redhat machine's IP address. I went through my router's config utility and forwarded (persistantly) port 22 to my target boxes IP. I also switched off DHCP on my router, because that would seem to nullify the port forwarding when the lease ran out.
I still cannot get putty to connect via the domain name. I get a connection refused each time.
I am sure that something I am configuring in the router is incorrect.
Here is my router's port forwarding setup:
private ip address=192.xxx.x.xx (my computers address)
private port=22 #I am sure this one is wrong
Anyone see where I am going wrong here? Or maybe you can elaborate on what I am misconfiguring?
