ssh

I can login to my computer from my computer's(the same/local computer) terminal using ssh -X id@ip command but I cannot access this computer using ssh secure shell client on another windows pc.

Do I need to configure the proxy there? or here?
anything I need to think about proxy when I want to start my ssh, so that I can use my computer from others using ssh!
I access internet using an http proxy on browser.

Re: ssh

You need to open port 22 in the ssh server's firewall.

Re: ssh

Hello,
Is the other computer not on the same network, say at work. If so you may need to point port 22 to the ip of the server in you router.

Re: ssh

To answer the last question, you don't have to do that if it's on the same network. Scott's post was dealing with a situation where you are trying to connect from a different network.

To open port 22, you can use system-config-security-level

(Install it with yum if you don't have it) which gives you a graphical interface to configure your firewall--there's also lokkit, a curses textmode tool.
