I have a burst VPS server and my home computer is behind a NAT. I want to use ssh redirection to connect with my home computer at another place.
I do this in my home computer:
ssh -fNgR 2221:localhost:22 email@example.com
and so there is a sock listen on port 2221 in myvps.info
netstat -an tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:2221 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
now i want to connect with my home computer with command bellow
ssh -p 2221 firstname.lastname@example.org
but it returned:
ssh: connect to host myvps.info port 2221: Connection refused
I use nmap myvps.info to see what port is open on there vps server it shows:
PORT STATE SERVICE 22/tcp open ssh 80/tcp open http 135/tcp filtered msrpc 139/tcp filtered netbios-ssn 445/tcp filtered microsoft-ds 593/tcp filtered http-rpc-epmap 4444/tcp filtered krb524
on 2221 port open! why and how can i slove this problem?
