First question I've asked here so please forgive me if I accidentally break a rule.
I recently set up an ssh server on my home machine, and am using ddclient to keep the dynamic DNS service at
home_hostname.my_domain.me updated with the home machine's address. The domain and the dynamic DNS service are provided by Google Domains.
When I try to ssh or remote desktop (using VNC) into my home machine from work via
ssh home_hostname.my_domain.me or the Remmina VNC client, I somehow end up connecting back to my own work machine. I tried this from several different computers, all with the same result: the DNS server directs them back to themselves.
Can anyone explain what I did wrong to cause this, and how to fix it? If my ddclient conf files are needed to diagnose the problem I can provide them in a few hours when I get home from work.
