Thread: SSH into your own machine

  1. #1

    Default SSH into your own machine

    I am capable of accessing my schools servers remotely via SSH, SFTP, etc. I was curious how one would go about remotely accessing your own machine remotely from another machine. I guess I am asking what would my host name be?

    You mean over the internet? You need to find out the IP your provider assigned to your box. Easiest way is a DynDNS account.
    If your machine is behind a router, you need to forward the necessary ports on the router to the local IP of your machine.

    On the LAN is a doddle.
    In KDE you can use fish://
    eg: fish://xxxx@192.168.0.2/home

    You need to set up ssh

    Within or into your own network?
    Give us more information about your network setup, please.

    Also, turn off the firewall's block of port 22 (TCP) on the machine being
    accessed.

    Good luck.

    Within in my network. I have a desktop connected via a wireless bridge upstairs. Say I am in the living room with my laptop. What would it take to access my desktop up stairs from the living room on my laptop

    By default with SUSE stuff SSH is running so just open the firewall port
    on the machine upstairs and SSH to it from the machine downstairs:

    ssh usernameOnRemoteBox@remoteBox

    If the username you use on your local box is the same as the remote box just:

    ssh remoteBox

    Good luck.

    Hi, mine is open since a few years now. Nothing bad has happened. I remember security issues with ssh and Debian earlier this year, but Suse was not affected.
    So, if you don't open that port, you will not be able to connect to your box via ssh. And with ssh you can also do fancy things like X11 forwarding. I like it. Nomad http://en.opensuse.org/Nomad is great as well. Whatever, regards and good luck!
