A week ago i startet to set up a SSH connection to my TP-LINK TL-WR1043N v5 with OpenWrt 18.06.5 r7897-9d401013fc / LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-19.309.48729-bc17ef6)
My Network looks like this:
Internet - Router from Provider (192.168.0.1) -"Cable to WAN Port"- TPLink (192.168.0.2)
I want to set up a secure Way to get SSH commands from "outside" to my TPLInk.
I set port 12345 in my SSH configuration
I forwarded Port 12345 on my Provider router to my TPLink
I created a Rule on my TPLink Wan Firewall, to allow incoming on port 12345
Now i should be able to connect with my IP Adress (http://checkip.dyndns.com/) and an SSH app on my mobilephone with Mobile Data on. But it isn't working. Network Timeout. I can't ping my IP too.
You may clearly see i am new to this, so i haven't understand the best way to get my goal working yet.
With the search function i got a little more confused about the use of ssh keys. is it better?
hoping for help,
