I would like to ssh into my local machine, from a remote ssh shell. by looking at
$ ifconfig wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 60:d8:19:24:bd:8b inet addr:188.8.131.52 Bcast:184.108.40.206 Mask:255.255.252.0 inet6 addr: fe80::62d8:19ff:fe24:bd8b/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1450 Metric:1 RX packets:2107490 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:1813977 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:2109347830 (2.1 GB) TX bytes:340765253 (340.7 MB)
I can do
ssh 220.127.116.11 from my local machine just fine. However when I try this from the remote machine (yes I do actually want to do this rather than just exit the shell) I get:
ssh: connect to host 18.104.22.168 port 22: No route to host
port 22 is open.
/etc/sysconfig/iptables did not exist on local machine so I created it and added:
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
just to be sure. still nothing.
Perhaps my entire approach is wrong - but I wondered if anyone had any adivce on how I can ssh back into my local machine, from a remote host? I need to do this for file/folder transfer purposes. I do not want to come out of remote host and use
scp as I need to push the file from the remote host, rather than retrieve it while on local host.
