im trying to allow ssh connections to my slackbox through the router. i changed it to port 55, and im able to connect to the machine fine through the internal ip, but when i try to connect to the external ip on port 55 using ssh, it times out. ive added the internal router ip - 192.168.0.1 - to the hosts.allow file, but it still doesnt work. any suggestions ?
no, this is all through home. im just wondering which files i should look at, or anything special i have to do to enable outside connections. it should just show as connecting through 192.168.0.1 , right ?
of course it is.
the router setting is really very simple. and sshd on the slackbox works fine. im just wondering if theres any entries i have to make in order for it to accept connections from the router as opposed to from inside the network.
