    Re: Internal SSH works, External SSH has connection issues

    Silly question, but are you absolutely sure you have the correct external IP address?

    If you don't pay for a static IP with your ISP there is a chance it may have changed since you last did 'curl ifconfig.me'.

    no such thing as a silly question, and yes the external IP i'm using was curl'd today. Now I'm finding out that after my external ip, there is some extra "notes" you could say. It looks like <external ip>.dhcp.davl.<state>.<ISP>.com I've never noticed this before but this would have no affect on a ssh connection right?

    To note, when I ssh into the server my terminal will "act" like its connected display the username and IP address it's connected to. I didn't know if this was a sign that the laptop was communicating with my desktop, or it was all being done on the laptop.

    If you successfully ssh into another machine, the prompt should look like:

    Code:
    remoteuser@remotehost

    You don't have to share it, but IMHO it would help other users that are trying to attempt the same task.

    Best Regards.
