My CentOS 5.6 server currently has two IP addresses assigned to it.  The public IP address is assigned to eth0 and the private IP address is assigned to eth1.

I need to open the SSH port (port 22) on the private ip address only.  Right now it is opened on both the public and private.  

My current etc/sysconfig/iptables is below:



# Generated by iptables-save v1.3.5 on Wed Mar 14 14:20:11 2012
*filter
:INPUT ACCEPT [0:0]
:FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0]

My ifconfig looks like

There are several ways to do this, here are 2 of the simpler ways.

Change the "ListenAddress" option in /etc/ssh/sshd_config to listen only on 192.168.1.13
ListenAddress 192.168.1.13

Open in new window



Change your existing iptables rule for SSH to only listen on eth1
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp -i eth1 --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

Open in new window


Personally I would make the change in sshd_config.
