I've tried restoring the router to the factory defaults and had to spend
a half an hour reconfiguring it to get the wireless, firewall, security
and of course internet modules working again.
I'm still no closer to getting this working though and I'm at a loss as
to what the problem is.
One thing that did cross my mind is that nmap is actually passing
through the router and it's the linux box that's stopping port 22.
I've turned off the firewall on the linux box temporarily to see if that
made any difference but as you can probably guess, it didn't. Is there
something else that could be causing this? Anything
in /etc/ssh/sshd_config or any of the other config files in that
directory? What about SELinux? Could that be causing a problem?
I can make a connection via SSH internallly from any of the other
computers in the house to this computer so ssh is definitly working
Any help would be very appreciated.
