A customer has the following set up:
- a Linux (Ubuntu) server (192.168.1.77)
- a VMWare virtual machine (192.168.1.75) hosted on the Linux server
- Windows Sever 2008 running on the virtual machine
- a BT Business Hub router (192.168.1.254)
At present I can RDP into the Windows Server 2008 VM remotely and from there I can PuTTy into the Linux server over the local network.
I can also remote in to the VMWare Control panel on
<server WAN IP address>:8333
The objective is to be able to PuTTy into the Linux server remotely, but without having to go via the VM.
In the router, port 22 and port 8333 are forwarded to the Linux server.
But when I try to PuTTy in to the Linux server remotely, the PuTTy window comes up but there is no login prompt, just a static cursor; and after a short while the connection times out.
Doing an internal (local network) port scan on the server shows that ports 22 and 8333 are open.
Doing the same scan but remotely, to the server WAN IP address shows port 22 closed and port 8333 open.
So what do I need to do to be able to open port 22 for remote ssh access to the Linux (Ubuntu) server?
