I have a Nokia M1122 ADSL modem.   Sitting behind the modem is a firewall appliance (IPCop).  The problem is that I can't set up ssh connections from out on the internet.  It should be as simple as opening up pin holes to forward ports through my modem and firewall, but I can't get it to work.

What I want to do is allow authorized ssh connections from the internet through the modem and through the firewall. The ssh ports are not standard (12345 and 2220).  I want one connection (2220) to go to the firewall, and the other (12345) to go to a PC on my network with a static address. No matter what I have tried, I don't seem to be able to break through the modem.  When I try to ssh in from the internet, I get "connection refused". 

It appears that the modem is blocking ssh connection attempts.  The modem is setup on Telecom.  I use dyndns to get the telecom IP.  On my side of the network, all IP addresses are static.  I don't need the modem firewall features so I have tried turning off NAPT, but then I can't connect out to the internet.  I have ticked all the "bridge" boxes.  I have tried setting up pinholes through the NAPT page, but my firewall doesn't record any successful hits.   Stateful Packet Inspection is disabled.

I have the firewall set up to forward the 12345 port onto the internal PC.

Has anyone successfully set up a Nokia M1122 to allow external ssh connections to pass through???
If so, how is it set up?

I just tried it here and it appears to work fine:

I dont have an answer, other than maybe try a modem with ppp extension or half bridge mode, and that way your wan port on the ipcop pc will be the direct internet connection without any double natting.

But the thing i did want to say is
WOW i didnt know those things still functioned.

Yea, its an oldy but a goody.  It just goes and goes.  I have a Netgear modem, but no reason to change.  It still NATS the traffic.

I have managed to get the port through to the red interface to my firewall.  I just need to try and get it inside my home network.  The modem bridging works.  The firewall sees the Jetstream IP address.

I never thought it would be so hard to break into my own network.
