i have installed SSH on my Linux computer. I have accessed the computer from a device that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network and it functions very well. But the problem I face is that when I try to connect externally to the Linux computer server via SSH it goes to say connection timed out. My firewall is allowing port 22 but it is still not connecting.

    Tell us more about your setup. Is the server behind a router? Do you use NAT? Did you set up port forwarding to the server on the router? – emk2203 Sep 13 '18 at 10:55
  • i have used geth. my server is being hosted via my linux machine, while being connected to my wifi router. i have not set up port forwarding as it is very complicated. it asks for which device and what port and the ip address too. i cannot configure this as i have not used the hub manager before. i am on a bt hub 6. – namz.5659 Sep 13 '18 at 13:08
  • You MUST enable port forwarding for ssh to your server to work. – emk2203 Sep 14 '18 at 17:41
