Thread: SSH port forwarding

  1. #1

    SSH port forwarding

    So I got my ETH up. (thanx!) Since I'm so darn busy at work I thought I could do a little reconisace and installing on my Linux box (which is at home) So I thought I'd set up a remote login.
    Here's the situation. My Linux box is behind a window$ firewall (Yes that's why I'm trying to setup a linux box) and on that Window$ firewall system I've made a forward:

    My outside: port 2300 is being forwarded to port 23 of my linux box. protocol= TCP

    But when I try to log in the operation times-out! (at least my firewal is working ahaha)

    Is forwarding allowed with a ssh tunnel?
    What protocol should I forward.

    Do you have your sshd running on port 23? The standard ssh port is 22 and 23 is usually used by telnet.

    I can't get it to work, must be something in Kerio Winroute Pro. I'll just do it at home then. Thanx.

    Hey for remote desktops, TightVNC or TridiaVNC is the best solution. Not only cross platform, but fast too.
