I'm attempting to create a remote session from the internal network to a device that is attached to the WAN interface. Understandably this is a non-contiguous network issue. I have found ways to go from the WAN interface to the internal network and be able to have it forwarded to a specific device. But, that's not what I'm trying to do. Would I have to enable remote management and ssh out?

== edit ==

How I'm remoting is from a windows 7 tower with putty installed out to an ubuntu server running squid.

**question title clarified

  • Normally there are no outbound restrictions. Is this device directly plugged into the WAN port? Can it ping the WAN IP address? – Paul Nov 26 '14 at 0:04
  • The device that I want to remote to is connected to the WAN interface. I double checked with [Administration >> Diagnostics >> ping] and I received a 0% packet loss from it. I feel silly asking this. It really shouldn't be an issue. However. I can't ping it from my windows box – Miphix Nov 26 '14 at 0:06
  • Ok, and do you have NAT enabled between the LAN and WAN? – Paul Nov 26 '14 at 0:18
  • No sir, I do not. Is this mandatory? – Miphix Nov 26 '14 at 0:21
  • wow, i just asked that – Miphix Nov 26 '14 at 0:24
