    Unhappy Accessing the private linux server over the internet ( public netowrk)


    Hi!

    The problem is persisting me for a long time. Here is the scenario....

    We are having a intranet server with the network address of 192.168.1. network. We are having a router with a public ip address for the usage of internet. My server is having the IP address of 192.168.1.10. Now I would like to access my server over the internet using the VNC or some other tools.

    My problem is how to access the my server over the internet using the public ip address ......

    Configure your router to forward on the ports you require on to your Linux box.

    For example if you are going to use SSH then you need to setup your router to forward port 22 to your Linux box.

    If its a SOHO router, check under Application Mapping. This allows for a port on the outside of the router to be opened and mapped to an particular internal IP address (aka NAT).

    That means if I configured NAT to forward the port ssh then I need access it using publicIP:22 ?

    There are a couple of ways to do this.
    You could use 22 and then forward that onto your box.
    You could use another port and then forward that onto your box.

    The options are only limited by what you can come up with.

    You should be able to Google the information you need. IF you still have issue I am then willing to help.
