Question SSH - How to avoid user to have my ISP domain added to it.

I have configured my ssh server and all.

Everything is working fine, but when I try to use SSH using my remote IP...
If I enter my local username (the same way as when I use the local ip)it add the ISP domain to it...

i.e. User = user1
i.e. Hostname = host1
i.e. ISP domain =

so if I ssh using user1 and local ip.. everything is fine.
if I ssh using user1 and remote IP.. it say wrong password and it show user as being

if I try something like ssh -l user1@host1.... it will end up with something like

how can I use just my local user to connect remotely using my public IP and not have the ISP domain added to my user?

Welcome to LQ!
Start with
man ssh_config
in your terminal, or favorite search_engine.
Ask you have any additional questions about it.

+1 for the manual page on ssh_config. There is a world of useful configurations in there. However, in this case it is the manual page for ssh, the client itself, you are looking for. The -l does not need user@ prepended to the remote host. Use it like this:

ssh -l user1 host1....

Note the spaces and the lack of the at sign.

Back to ssh_config instead, if you look at ssh_config you will see that you could set up ~/.ssh/config to make a shortcut or two:

Host host1
        User user1
        Port 22
That allows you to connect as user1 to host with just ssh host1 in the shell.

If you are logged in to your local machine with the same login as the remote you dont need to give the user ssh assumes you will be using the same user so in my case
ssh homenet
is the same as:
ssh -l keithhedger homenet
