I was given access to a university server, for which I have username, hostname, IP address and everything I'd need. I need to connect via ssh from my linux machine. From within the university network there was no problem in connecting but trying from home gives me some troubles. I get connection time-out error and I don't really know if I have to tunnel through some gateway or try something else. By now I tried with some basic instructions which I expected to work, such as:
ssh -D 9090 user@hostname
From what I understood, an alternative is that using the ssh
-R option might help me if I set up a local gateway, but I'm not going anywhere.
Thank you in advance.
ssh: connect to host
hostnameport 22: Connection timed out
(Being the port the same that I used from within the campus, I don't think it should be a problem)
