Re: How to access RPI over the net? Can't get it to work.

You might be interested in bitttorrent sync if you'd like to "start hosting things yourself". BTSync is a dropbox type service that lets you sync files between computers without going through a 3rd party sever(ie. Icloud). I recently migrated away from dropbox and have been very happy so far with b...

Re: How to access RPI over the net? Can't get it to work.

and for you own safety - disable the user pi and use another username I planned on making a new user on the pi....haven't gotten to that point in the manual yet. Hoping to do as little with the GUI interface as possible, by the way (not that you mentioned it, just a general note). I want to force m...

Re: How to access RPI over the net? Can't get it to work.

Leave SSH port 22 on your LAN alone. Change it on your WAN (port forward WAN port 2222 to LAN port 22) if you must. Right on. Just to clarify... I read that I can change it on the RasPi itself. So it listens for SSH on a non-standard port. I thought maybe that could potentially create confusion wit...

Re: How to access RPI over the net? Can't get it to work.

It would also be advisable to change or add an additional SSH port number and do not forward TCP 22 (to minimise on script kiddie attacks). Richard S. I have taken down the port forward (again, I only use it when I need it...for now...), but could I ask for a little clarification? Specifically, I h...

Re: How to access RPI over the net? Can't get it to work.

Oh, and about the ditching of the passwords...yes! That's my next step. But that one is a completely new idea to me, so I'm scouring for good intel on it now. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I'm incredibly concerned about security due to the nature of my business (I work in an industry that s...

Re: How to access RPI over the net? Can't get it to work.

Copy that! Thanks, folks! Believe it or not, while I was awaiting approval for this post to go up, I figured it out. I actually was able to connect with "ssh pi@123.45.678.910 -p 1234"....so that's one step closer. And yes, I'm well aware of Dynamic DNS. I've actually been port forwarding for years,...

How to access RPI over the net? Can't get it to work.

Hey, all. I'm just getting started with my RPi. I'm able to connect to it via Terminal on my Mac as long as I'm connected to my local network. But I can't connect to it from my work Mac. I have forwarded an external port number to my RPI's IP (I have it static) internal port 22. Here I'm getting hun...
