Can’t establish ssh connection to my servers from the outside. Why can that be?


I would be very grateful for any advice.

I can’t establish ssh connection from outside of my LAN it seems like. I am wondering what can be the issue. Do I have to port forward tcp the random ssh port I have chosen, on my LAN router to my local servers.

If that is the case, is that secure?

What else can it be ?

Best regards,

Yes you have to forward the port to your server if you want to connect to it from outside of your LAN :slight_smile:


you can use Open Port Check Tool - Test Port Forwarding on Your Router to check make sure the port is open as well.


Thank you very much, I will do that .
