I could really do with some help. I am trying to do something very simple,
which is allow SSH access to a Fedora box on my internal lan to a friend.
On the Firewall I have created the following rule:
Proto Source Port Destination Port
TCP * * 192.168.1.12 22 (SSH) NAT MCE
And on NAT I have:
If Proto Ext. port range NAT IP Int. port range
WAN TCP 22 (SSH) 192.168.1.12 22 (SSH) MCE
I am running v1.11 of m0n0wall, which I know is not the latest version, but
I was unable to get a very old version of Cisco VPN client to work with
later versions of m0n0wall, which I have to use for connecting to my work
From a PC on my LAN I can telnet to 192.168.1.12 and get the SSH login, so
Im pretty sure that it must be the firewall... I dont have anything fancy
set up on the firewall (no PPTP etc).
However, if my friend telnets to port 22 of my WAN IP address, he basically
just gets a timeout.
I should state that I enabled logging on the firewall rule and I can see
that the firewall appears to be successfulyl passing traffic from my
friends' IP address to 192.168.1.12, port 22. This makes the whole thinig
even more confusing!!
Any help would be very gratefullly appreciated.
