Ok. I managed to *briefly* connect with my machine from outside. I
still think there's something "hinky" about my config since I

F10. Now, I can SSH in from my wife's XP box on the LAN, but I can't
SSH in from outside, either on port 22 or the non-standard port I
configured to make things more difficult for hackers (port number is
in excess of 2000).

I can SSH in from inside the LAN on either the standard port or the
non-standard port, but I cannot access my machine from outside.

I've tried several things, but none of them seem to work. Any
suggestions where to look?
Got a router in the mix there?  If you changed the port that ssh answers
on you'll need to set the router to port forward incoming port 22
connections to your non-standard port.

Yup. I got a Netgear ISDN router. I had it set to forward *only* the non-
standard port, but for some reason that doesn't appear to be working. However, I got into the router and re-enabled the port 22 forward and it's working now. I don't like having that port enabled though, so I'm going to have to play with it and see if I can't get the non-standard port working again... funny thing, it *was* working in FC6. I think I'll back up the current sshd_config and copy the one from FC6 in and see if that makes a difference.


You have to have your router on "Port Forwarding" to get to your PC from the outside. Your router is acting like a Firewall. If your on a local network, then no, you can ssh from box to box on that local network.
What are you trying to do ??
