It's been a long while now since I've been out of the Linux world, and I'm very glad to be back
I have what I hope to be a rather simple problem. I have a box named xxx.no-ip.org running a fresh install of Slackware 64-bit V13.37 (no configurations of any sort have been made!)
I am able to SSH to the machine from another computer on the network via the machine's private IP addres and log in successfully.
When I try to SSH to the machine from via it's FQDN (ie. xxx.no-ip.org), however, I get halfway there; I am able to reach the login screen and enter my username nad password, but I am unable to login. Running ssh with the -vvv option reveals that there is no response from the box (no rejection or anything); instead, it the connection is closed by the box after several seconds of waiting.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I would greatly appreciate the assistance!
- I enabled port forwarding on my router: all TCP 22 packets go towards the box
- I am using the free Dynamic DNS service provided by no-ip.org; I already installed their client to automatically update my IP address and it appears to be working correctly since I can reach the ssh login of the machine; it's just not replying to my request to login.
