On ubuntu 14.04 I have installed openssh, changed the ssh port. I can login within LAN with no problems, but I cannot access it from outside.

I also have: allowed it though firewall and set up port forwarding on my linksys router

Whenever I login, I get the error (I have replaced # instead of numbers):

ssh: connect to host #.#.#.# port #: Can't assign requested address

What else can I check, what could be wrong? Please help.

  • From outside, what is the output of ping #.#.#.# ? – Mark Plotnick Jun 14 '15 at 19:43
  • Is that an apple error? – user1794469 Jun 15 '15 at 0:21
  • Cannot ping (request timeout). Not an apple error, does not work on windows neither. I have also disabled the router firewall (temporarily for testing). – Jake B. Jun 15 '15 at 12:53
