router port forwarding/ssh


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 ?

Uh, is your router set up to forward port 55 to your machine?

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.

epoo.. I just recently installed slack.. last week as a matter of fact.. all i fowarded on my router was 22... and i was able to connect to my (home) slackbox from work.

might want to try moving it back to 22 and try it that way?
