I want to connect my iMac remotely via ssh. Even though I can connect it locally, I can't do it remotely. When I try to connect remotely it refuses the connection.
port 22: Connection refused
I saw lots of discussions about the problem but w/o success. This is why I am opening a new thread.
I also disabled the firewall but still cannot connect. For diagnosing purposes, I executed
netstat tupan and I see ssh local address as 192.168.1.33.ssh and Foreign address as 192.168.1.33.49883. Here is the output.
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address (state)
tcp4 0 0 192.168.1.33.ssh 192.168.1.33.49886 ESTABLISHED
tcp4 0 0 192.168.1.33.49886 192.168.1.33.ssh ESTABLISHED
tcp4 0 0 192.168.1.33.ssh 192.168.1.33.49884 ESTABLISHED
tcp4 0 0 192.168.1.33.49884 192.168.1.33.ssh ESTABLISHED
Could someone explain me what does this mean? Are those 49884 and 49886 are port numbers? Should I open new ports via port forwarding? And most importantly, could you guys explain me how can I connect remotely via ssh in layman terms please?
