Hi, i've passed by alot of posts regarding this matter, but none are specific enough to my problem (or are they?). Please dont laugh, i'm new to linux.
i have a Mandrake 8.2 Firewall that stands between my home LAN and the internet. The internal ip is 192.168.0.1 and it is fully updated.
problem #1 - ssh
i am trying to use PuTTY to open an SSH root session on my firewall. i installed all the packages that have 'ssh' in their name, and when i try to connect, i get a message "Connection closed by remote host." if anyone can shed light on this, it would be helpful.
problem #2 - port forwarding
i would like to use VNC to connect to my Win2k box inside my LAN from school. My friends at school have accomplished this (no firewall) so i know that the problem isn't between the school and my firewall. i know i am supposed to use iptables, but how?
Thanx in advance.
