I'm currently trying to allow my computer to be remotely accessed via ssh. The computer is running Ubuntu 11.10. I've used ssh on several occasions in the past, but I've only used the basic features and I've always been on the client side.
I've installed ssh and when try something like:
It seems to work without a problem. The problem arises when I to ssh via my public IP:
This will sit there for quite a while then return something along the lines of:
ssh: connect to host XX.XX.XX.XX port XX: Connection timed out
I'm attempting to use the host computer to try to connect to itself through the public IP for testing purposes, but I don't think that should be the cause of the problem. I suspect that it has to do with the settings on my router, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions? Thanks.
