Hello all,

Can anyone tell me how to configure the DGL-4500 to allow SSH from another network to a server which is inside the home network IP address  I can SSH to this Linux server while I am at home but when I  try to SSH outside the home network (Internet) I cannot and I get Connection Time Out Error.  Thank you.

You are trying to connect to a home network (Lan) from another ISP connection. Of course you can connect to it while your in the home network but not while you are outside, I may have a solution for this. Try setting up a Virtual Server rule on the DGL 4500. Once logged into the DGL 4500 user interface, navigate to Advance > Virtual Server I hope this works out for you.

It should look something like this, except with your settings.
