Trying to setup SSH ability to an Ubuntu 19.10 server....

I have an EA7500. I need to know what to put for start/end port and device ip#. Local IP is For context, here's a link to the portforward.com article. SSH is running on port 22, which I don't care if it needs to be changed or not, whatever you guys suggest. I've never done any port forwarding before, how would I fill in the fields?

  • Do you need the public IP to help me or no? – amyiris Nov 25 '19 at 4:58
  • NEVER share your public [WAN] IP online. Start and End port is for port range forwarding, you need single port forwarding. Port range would be when you need to forward several ports in sequential order (i.e. 3000-3010). DO NOT forward WAN-side port 22.. pick an extremely high port number (>50000, but <65535, as port scanners generally don't scan all 65,535 ports, so the higher the better) for the WAN-side port and forward that to the LAN-side port the SSH server is running on. For example, any in WAN on port 53815 to on port 22 – JW0914 Nov 25 '19 at 7:38
  • Why do you go to port range forwarding when you want single port forwarding :-\ – Tom Yan Nov 25 '19 at 10:59
