    Accessing Work Computers from Home


    I am on a VPN at work which is behind a NOKIA IP30. I want to be able to ssh into my system so I will be able to do some work from my house. I've heard that it could be done with SSH but I haven't been able to figure out how to do this.

    Are there any suggestions on how to establish an ssh connection from my house into my work computer?

    You'll have to setup the router to forward all new connection requests on port 22 (the ssh port) to your box at work. Then just install, configure and run sshd on your work box and ssh your router's IP from home.

    you can find ssh here:http://grid.ncsa.uiuc.edu/ssh/download.html.there are useful guides there to look..

    you can also use google to find ssh information.i would suggest you to download nmap-frotend to see the status of your ports.it will show you if you have configured ssh correctly (port 22 opened)...
    then run the daemon (sshd) and that's it!
