want to ssh/ftp to home machine (Slack) from office through home router
Howdy. My home desktop is running Slackware 10.2 and is connected to my cable modem through a linksys router. I want to be able to ssh into my home machine from my office machine, but it doesn't seem to work at the moment. I glanced through my router settings, but nothing stood out that looked like it needed to be changed. I'm assuming my router is acting as a type of firewall, but I'm not exactly sure how to bypass it. Thanks for any help!

You'll need to login to your router and forward port 22 to your home machine's IP on your network - your router's documentation should explain how to do this.

I assume you already have SSHD configured properly on your machine? You can do "ssh localhost" and get in?

[edit] - Have you verified that your network admins at work allow outgoing port 22 traffic? I had this same problem, eventually set SSHD to listen on port 23, since work didn't block that.
