I just downloaded and installed ZeroShell and it looks really great. Very impressive!
I do have a question: I want to create a firewall rule to allow ssh connections into my ZeroShell server. In order to make things real simple, I created a rule which descripion (after creating it) reads:
ACCEPT tcp opt — in * out * 0.0.0.0/0 -> 0.0.0.0/0 tcp dpt:22
After saving the changes, I am still unable to connect via SSH. (SSH Error message: Connection refused.) BTW: this rule was created under the “INPUT” chain.
Pretty sure I am doing something wrong… can anyone help?
You should enable the sshd daemon by running the script
After that you have to set the root password by typing the command
passwd. In any case is better if you restrict the ssh access only from your LAN by using the INPUT chain of the firewall.
