    sshd


    Hello everyone. I want to set up a ssh server to allow everyone willing to download thing i have in my computer to do it. I've install all the required openssh packages but i cannot configure it well, the daemon refuses all conections, i know there are something else besides running the daemon, like allow the incoming connection to the sshd port in iptables, etc. but i can't find a good manual or good information about all i need to do to set u my functional server. any guide will be highly appreciated

    Have a look at your /etc/ssh/sshd_config. There are many ways to configure the ssh daemon from there. If you run:
    Code:
    system-config-securitylevel
    You can use it to open the ssh port so anyone can get through.

    Sure it is. Different distros have different iptables front-ends.

    may be a router problem, do you have port forwarding setup up as sshd, on port 22, to the local router assigned ip of you box?

    you are right, i think it is a router problem. i have broadband internet using a modem-router. I had also notice that my iptables rules are redirected to something like RH-Firewall-1- but i haven't run deep into the details

    If you haven't explicitly configured your router's firewall to forward the connection to your sshd machine then connection from the outside world without using reverse port forwarding isn't going to happpen. Check out the following link:

    _MANY_ routers are given here with step-by-step configuratoin examples.

    In the most times the router is configured as Firewall. How painfully it is ofcourse. Use DNAT of your router to forward ports!
