    2 machines, 1 IP..

    Can anyone help me with a problem? I have 2 machines connected to the internet through a normal ADSL box. other one is a ubuntu machine for surfing etc, and the other is a debian SSH server. I cant ssh into the debian machine outside my LAN. Can anyone help me with changing the IP addresses?

    Are both computers able to access the internet normally?
    If so, your ADSL box functions as a NAT router. You can
    make your SSH server available to outside clients by configuring
    your router to do port forwarding of the SSH port 22
    to the server. You will need to read the manual of the ADSL
    box to see how to do this.

    If your computers do not both have normal connectivity,
    your ADSL box doesn't do NAT routing, and you will need
    to add a router.
