Currently I have ssh set up using openSSH on cygwin. I port forwarded from my router to the computer, and added an exception for port 22 on my windows firewall. I have free AVG which I believe does not have a firewall associated with it.
When I login to ssh using VMWare running ubuntu, I can login to my server using my LAN IP, but I can't login using my external IP. I get "Connection Refused" on port 22.
Here's the odd part: I scanned my port 22 on canyouseeme.org and it showed that port 22 was visible. However, when i nmap my port 22 through my external IP, it showed that port 22 was not open.
I'm not very experienced with ssh so any help would be great! thank you!
some things I've tried:
netstat -a | grep ssh
me@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ ssh -v -v -v me@mycomp OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu4, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to myexternalIP port 22. debug1: connect to address myexternalIP port 22: Connection refused ssh: connect to host myexternalIP port 22: Connection refused

I can login with my internal IP... me@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ ssh me@myInternalIP me@myInternalIp's password:

The router I'm using is Verizon GT04-WG-B
