I have DSL service through CenturyLink and my DSL modem/router has SSH enabled. I do not use the command line to configure the router and I want to access a Linux machine sitting behind the router via SSH. I setup port forwarding, but when I try to SSH to the Linux box the SSH server on the router responds instead.

Does anyone know how I can permanently disable the SSH server on the router? So far I haven't been able to find a configuration option in the web GUI...

From the router's web-based administration, you can edit the URL to access the hidden menus. Try main.html and tr69.html.

Thanks David, both the URLs you suggested were available. However, I still didn't see any options to disable the SSH server on the router itself... :-( – Bryan Dec 30 '11 at 17:20
