    DD-WRT + SSH from remote site


    Upgraded to dd-wrt.v23 standard
    Disabled telnet
    Enabled SSH.
    added iptables rule to allow souce x.x.x.x/yy
    disabled password login
    got public key authentication working from home
    went to work
    sshd into wrt54gs v1.0 using putty and forwarding port 80 for forwarding vnc from another host on the lan as well.

    everything was running smooth.

    » provided me the DD-WRT GUI. Then, I checked off on adding filter for IDENT 113 and next thing I know, I get disconnected. And for the last three hours, I keep getting Network error: connection timed out.

    So I modify putty to enable keepalives and yet I get the same error.

    I ran ethereal and it looks like the router is just not responding to the syn packets at all.

    I'm hoping I didn't brick the router.

    Please advise.


    Just got back home from work to check on the router. It's been up for about 7 hours. It should be up longer than that. I assume that once I was on initially and changed the settings, the router had a reboot.

    To keep my iptables rule in effect after a reboot, I placed that same command in nvram just in case of reboot.

    Any ideas on what I've done incorrectly?
