    Remotely accessing a computer behind a gateway...

    Just wondered how would I access it. To make things a bit easier to understand:

    I have a server box which hosts the net connection. I can remotely access it ok with SSH. There is another computer on the LAN which is my http server and I wish to access it remotely when needed. The only thing I can think of is to SSH into the gateway, then SSH again from within that to the http server. But that seems clumsy. Is there a more direct method? Its just a simple gateway, doesnt have any DHCP or DNS services, all it does is firewall, host the connection and forward port80 to my http server.

    Thanks...

    TTFN,

    You could forward the port (say 1337) from your gateway directly to your http server allowing you to ssh straight in.

    Yeah. Ashcrow is correct... Just open up whatever port you want, forward that to your SSH port of your websever. When you want to access it, just SSH into that port, say 3333. All you do is ssh your.box.ip:3333
