Secure shell is up and running today.

Port forwarding is set up from the dsl modem that acts as a router for the office.Secure shell is up and running today.

The ssh service also had to be set up through the firewall too. We're using Firestarter 1.0.3.

Firestarter (1)

Used it first time last week. Simpler to get a setup that amateurs can maintain than Shorewall! Even with webmin.

There are some tricks with getting it to add additional chans - such as maintaining outbound IPSec/IKE traffic. You can add these to a user_pre file, under /etc/firestarter/

There's no GUI for this, but I found that I ended up editing the conf files by hand, after seeing the examples started by the GUI. My little Debian box (Ubuntu Breezy) runs on a 200MHz Winchip (Pentium clone). I can load Gnome in the 128 Mb RAM, but why hurt myself? 'Sides, if you go that route, you can ssh into the firewall and manage it remotely!

What's the command line syntax to ssh into a machine and then copy a file there back onto the other machine?
