Subject: Unable to connect to sshd on server inside firewall
First post as newbie to the list.. ?
I have a configuration question that has been troubling me. I have
been trying to setup a server running sshd (OpenSSH) under SFU
(Services for Unix) on a (W2K Srvr) machine that sits behind a
firewall. Sshd is listening on a port that has allegedly been opened
up through the firewall. When I try to connect to the server from
the client (my workstation), I get the notification of the new public
key, followed by the password prompt. When I enter the password and
press enter, I am prompted for the password again.
So I am unable to connect.
This same server configuration worked flawlessly without the firewall
in the mix, but when the server was relocated to behind the firewall,
it no longer works.
Is there something I need to configure differently now that sshd is
on a server behind a firewall? I thought that as long as the port
being used was open, I would be good to go.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
