I have netgear router. Initially I had forwarded all tcp ports to internal server centos

I was able to ssh into that using my ssh user@publicip.

now I have installed Ubuntu trusty with IP and forwarded all ports on router to that IP.

But I am not able to ssh from outside. I get error ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out.

I am able to ssh within internal network.

I have no firewall and no selinux enable in Ubuntu.

What else can I check?

Its not only ssh but port 80 is also not accessible

Have you verified it is listening with netstat? – MaQleod Mar 14 '14 at 2:15
@MaQleod i have added netstat ouput – user1721949 Mar 14 '14 at 2:19
If it works internally on the network, then a netstat is not needed. An online port checker tool shows port 22 is closed on your external IP: - Double check your port forwarding – Tillman32 Mar 14 '14 at 2:20
@Tillman32 yes my port 80 is also coming as closed. how can i open it – user1721949 Mar 14 '14 at 2:23
Not sure about apache2, i'm not that familiar with the config for it. The next step for ssh would be to run tcpdump -i <iface_name> port 22 on the box and then attempt a connection. The traffic (or lack thereof) should help narrow down the problem. – MaQleod Mar 14 '14 at 2:57
  • first use tcpdump to make sure that ubuntu doesnt get the traffic, then if not..
  • ..change IP of the centos from to another free IP,,
  • add an alias to ubuntu, so that is has AND in the same time and
  • try sshing from outside. if it works then the problem with the netgear is that it still forwards connections to the old IP
