Hi Neil,

You need to log into your router, locate all the attached devices,
write down their internal IP addresses, ping them and if the pings
are successful, make sure that the firewall is allowing you to talk
freely within your intranet on the ssh ports that you are using (look
in the firewall logs for information about this). The default
configuration of your router will almost certainly be to block incoming
connections, and it may even be locked down tighter than that:

A problem. My wifi connection does use wpa2 on the router, and there is a strong password. The problem is, although I can remember that password, I have long forgotten the admin password (which I had changed from the default), so I cannot access the router without doing a reset, which I am reluctant to do.

So I cannot follow your excellent advice. Meanwhile, I have never used SSH before, after 18 years of Linux, so I will just leave it for the moment. Perhaps sometime in the future .... I might even get a new router eventually.


By the way, I don't know if it just me but I get two copies of all your emails to the list.
