Router port forwarding troubleshoot
I have a usrrobotics router at home and I have forwarded all my ports to a vmware virtual machine running suse 10.1.
I can connect within my local network (ssh) if I use the LAN IP (192.168.2.7) However when I try to do it from ouside I get connection timeout every single time. I've done something similar with a virtual machine running windows and I was able to rdp to my box, however I haven't been able to do it with linux.
A possible explanation would be the firewall in suse, but I even tried disabling it without luck. I also added the entry in the host.allow file
sshd : ALL : ALLOW
So the question is: how do I even know if the request is hitting the right "box" or if it is a problem with my router?
