    Remote SSH Connection Problem


    I'm trying to connect via ssh from a remote computer. Currently I can connect from another computer on my local network, but every time I try to connect through my DynDNS, or directly with my IPAddress it won't accept my password and says:
    "Permission denied, please try again."

    I have the following:
    • Port forwarding on port 22, from a bt voyager 2110 router.
    • DynDNS registered account, which is setup ok (i think).
    • I'm running ubuntu
    • I have the OpenSSH client & server.

    Any ideas?

    1) Do not use root user, direct root login may be disabled.

    2) Look to /var/log/ there should be file "secure" (it is in Fedora). Look what is inside this file, there can be some important error messages. If you find nothing of interrest then just remember the date of last message and try to log in again from outside throught router. Then look again into that log file, if there are new lines. If not, then you are either trying to connect to wrong server, or your port forwarding is not working properly
