    ssh from a private ip

    1. i have a private ip address on my fedora core -2. can i run
    # ssh x.x.x.x from my system
    where x.x.x.x is a public ip address .

    2. The new connection which my ISP has supplied is very latest. in this case, the DSL modem (uses PPPoE) gets the public IP address & all my internal systems within the LAN have private IP address. 19 systems r on win XP and one is on fedora core -2 . will there b any problem ?? if i donot get a public IP on any of the systems , what can b the possible disadvantages ?? Can everything be achieved with the private IP address on my fedora core -2 ?

    If you have access to the router (assuming you have a router) and that has the public IP address assigned, you should be able so simply forward your ssh port to the particular private IP that is assigned to fedora box.

    I currently have three PCs on my home LAN, each with a private IP connected to my router that uses the public IP from my ISP. I just go into the router's configuration and forward the http, ssh and ftp ports to the appropriate PC (they are all served on my linux box).
