I am in the process of setting up my own server which is running the latest version of ubuntu server. However, I am having trouble ssh'ing into my server using the public ip. After reading a quite a few threads in some forums, I've noticed that they all seem to suggest you have to open port 22 on your router. I'm not sure I did this right and would appreciate it if someone can assist me in opening port 22.
Here's what I did:
1.Went to the advance tab
2.Selected the port forwarding tab from the left menu
3.Under name I put a random name
4.Under tcp port to open, I entered 22
5.Under schedule, I selected always
6.Under IP address, I entered the LAN address of my server
7.Under udp port to open, I entered 22
8.Under inbound filter, I selected allow all
I would appreciate it if someone can confirm if this is indeed the steps to opening up a port. I would also appreciate it it someone can offer solutions to my problem?
