Hi, I am behind I router and want to set up an ssh server on my computer.
I have installed open ssh server, and it has automatically added itself to services starting at boot, however sshd-xinetd is also there but has "start when requested" unchecked. Does this refer to an addition in the configuration for xinetd? Should both be checked? Should I only have ssh-xinetd?
Now, when setting up the router, I assume I just port forward the ssh port to my computer. My router has the ability to forward a wan port of X to a private port of Y. Should I do this for security reasons? What benefit could there be to running the server on a different port?
Finally, is there anything else I should do to increase the security of the SSH server?
Any info is appreciated
