Question can't ssh to home


I want to ssh from school to my home box, but when I try to I get,

<my IP> port 22: Connection refused

How do I open up that port? I'm using mandrake 8.2. Can you tell me specifically what I need to do?

Thanks

well is ssh even running? if you've not deliberatley blocked that port it should work, as long as you have the server running

I might be wrong but I think you need to ssh to port 222 not 22.

Give it a try.

ssh is on port 22 not 222
you have change your firewall's setting so that is leaves port 22 alone
then you have to tell linux tu run the ssh daemon (ssh server) so that you can connect to it (in redhat I've change that in the kickstart configuration, I just checked the SSHD box)

If you do that, it should be ok unless your linux computer is not directly connected to internet dans uses a connection sharing like me ; if you have that you have a few other thing to set, but I can't help you I still have a few problems with that ; I don't know why but sometimes it works and sometimes not

well good luck ssh rules with all the text-based softwares
