so i decided that i needed to use my workstation @home on a remote location over the internet and setup a openssh tunnel and vnc/ftp server on that workstation... all was well so far.
Any local network host can use the ssh server and both services just fine and everything works.
But when i tell my modem to forward port 22 from the servers ip number to the external isp ip number i cannot get a connection.
When i load the isp ip in putty it fails with the message "error - connection denied..."
even with all firewall turned off the device doesn't become accessable from the wan side of the router from anywhere (checked my at my friends house aswell.)
Did anyone have a similar problem, and how was it resolved... ?
I found a lot of refferences on google but non actually held a solution to the problem.
