I setup a home server to play with. Instead of remembering the IP address, I created a subdomain on my hostmonster personal website (http://subdomain.domainname.com) and redirected it to point at my server at home.
On my router firewall at home, I forwarded port 80 and 22 to allow web and ssh to get through to that server.
It seems, however, that my webhost forwards the port 80 requests, but does not forward ssh requests. I came to that conclusion after noticing the following:
When I access http://subdomain.domain.com I successfully see the web pages hosted on my home server. However, when I ssh into email@example.com I cannot authenticate. ssh'ing into homeusername@homeIP works fine.
I also found that ssh'ing into firstname.lastname@example.org will ssh successfully into my web account.
Does anyone know how I can setup that kind of 'ssh forwarding' ?
Thanks in advance,
