in case of confusion. i would like to remote access into suse.

Commented:
A couple of things to check:

- Is SSHD running on the SuSE box? It should be by default, but always worth checking this first...
     Use /etc/init.d/sshd status
     to find out

- SuSE installs a firewall by default, check that SSH (port 22) is allowed through the firewall

Thank u. now i can access from Lan, but how can i do in order to access from WAN?

Commented:
Set up a port forwarding rule on your router to forward port 22 to whatever your internal IP is. eg 192.168.x.x

Thank you , it is work.    every time when someone try to connect my rounter port 22 , my rounter will forward to my pc port 22. Am I right?
Tell me how to add point to u?
