Question How to configure SSHD behind a Firewall?


Hi ya,

just another newbie question here - I'm afraid, I do not find in the posts in this forum anything regarding the asked solution.

I have now SuSE 9.0 prety well working and making no troubles anymore (well, the sound has yet not been tested, the multimedia features also not tested, bu I guess I'll win the battle again, since I've won it once ago), so now, in turn, comes the famous SuSE_Firewall.
Currently it blocks effectively any attempt to contact the machine from the outer world. I want to have SSH-connections enabled, but only on one single port (the default seems to be port 22) and only in the following form:

ssh -l username qqq.xxx.yyy.zzz

How to "open" part of the firewall for such connections and what should I configure for the SSH deamon in order to allow such connections?!

Many thanks in advance for the answers.

Kind regards,
sbogus

Open yast2 > Security and users > Firewall > Reconfigure firewall settings , then click next and you'll see the option to let ssh open. Very easy.
