Hi

I'm a little concerned as port 22 is open to the internet on my Router.

If I SSH to it from another connection I get a login prompt. I can't login to it with my login and password.

I've factory reset the device and still have the same issue.

What can I check for?  Maverick can you check from your end?

I imagine it's open so that WorldxChange can remotely access your router to perform all sorts of tricks? 

If this is not the case, just create a port foward rule passing the traffic to this port to some non-existent port on a non-existent IP in your network ;)

Maverick,

You were probably on leave when I posted this. Any Ideas??

Sorry did miss this and picked it up today, this is a function of this router and unfortunately can not be closed as I was informed of by Cisco today, if it's a issue or concern you can do as Mauricio has suggested and port forward it to a dead internal IP.

Thanks Maverick,

I've forwarded to an IP on a different subnet to what I am using so should go nowhere.
