Me, my friends and my sister want to share pictures and music over the internet. I have Ubuntu, my sister has Vista, most of my friends have XP, and two of them have Macs (OS X 10.4 or 10.5, it all looks the same to me). I would be the main server, people would connect to my computer.Cross-platform compatibility is a must, so I tried Hamachi, and it's buggy as hell --> Hence I'm now trying OpenSSH. I heard there are tons of GUI's to connect to an SSH server on every OS.
So I've read about it, and i've figured out how to connect to a computer in a LAN --> my computer name is Frankie3 and my username is besner, so in a LAN I used :
But I can't figure out how someone over the internet can connect to my computer, especially since I'm behind a Router. I'm no n00b in computer, but I am in networking. I know how to forward ports.ssh besner@Frankie3
So let's say I forward port 22 to my computer, and I create an account named "leech" for my pal. Let's say my internet IP is 220.127.116.11 and my local IP is 192.168.0.1
using the commandWould this work ??? Would he be able to log in ?Code:ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
And how do I choose which file I'll share with him ? and how does he copy them to his computer ??
That's the part I need help with. Thanks alot.
