Novice question here.
I've setup an ubuntu server on an old desktop I have. On the server, I've created a user and gave it sudo privileges. When I use PuTTY, if I enter the ip address to login, I can get in no issue. But when I try to log in to the hostname (which was setup via no-ip) I get Access Denied.
To clarify, if I login to username@ipaddress, I get prompted to enter the password and boom I'm in.
But, if I do username@hostname, I get prompted to enter the password and I get "Access Denied".
I know it must be an issue on the no-ip side, but I can't figure it out. Any tips? Thanks in advance!
EDIT: The server is connected directly to my home modem, not to a router. The laptop I am trying to connect on happens to be on the same network right now, but through the wifi router as opposed to physically to the modem. But that will not always be the case. I'd like to be able to access the server from outside my home network.
