ssh from outside throough a router


Hello guys, I have a home network, and I am trying to setup a ssh connection to one of my linux-boxes, so I can access it when I am not at home. I have ssh running on port 669 without any problem, I can access my box without a problem from a computer on the same LAN. I have a Belkin wireless router, and I am trying to forward all my ssh traffic to the linux box. My outside IP is 67.173.XXX.XX, my ssh computer has private IP 192.168.2.7 with SN of 255.255.255.0. Belkin has an option called Virtual Servers, that "will allow you to route external calls for services through your Router to your internal network ". I have something similar to this

Enable Descr. Inbound Port Type Private IP Private Port
check secure-SH 669-669 TCP 192.168.2.7 669-669


OK, I don't get where the problem is, the only thing I am worried about is the 669-669 part. But when I just selected the default service from the menu, it filled in 22-22, so I assumed that I have to put 669-669. I tested with -669 and 669-, but I still get host unknown. Can anyone help pls

I am not familiar with home grade gear, but will this Belkin allow you to forward port 22 to a local machine port 669? In other words, will it be able to do the following PublicIP:22 -> 192.168.x.y:669?

There are loads of tutorials on forwarding port's on the internet. Use google to find one for your router. You want to forward port 669.

Thanx, everyone for their posts. After spending a whole day yesterday reading at documentation and searching on google, I decided to call Belkin directly. It turned out that I had done everything perfectly, but apparently there is a problem with the router. I am shipping it back to the manufacturer.
