So I've been scouring the internet for days trying to figure this out and can't figure it out.
I know its going to be an easy one.
So I recently took an old desktop and loaded ubuntu server 12.04 on it. My goal with this project is to create an area to host a few git repositories and maybe a simple webpage.
I've installed both the SSH and Apache2 packages and tried to configure them. Right now I can log in from my laptop using ssh firstname.lastname@example.org but only while I am on the same network. Once I leave the house I get a timeout error.
So 2 things I would like to get at right now.
How to configure the SSH to allow me to access the server from outside the network. Get my host name on the server so logins will be greg@hostname instead of email@example.com
(I've done sudo hostname and changed the etc/hostname file and no results)
