    Hi first post (new dd-wrt user).

    Everything setup great on a wrt54gl.... except when i do a port scan it shows port 22.

    I have searched on these forums and see mention of people moving the port to a higher one, however i cannot find the ssh entry.

    I do not wish to use ssh at all. How can I stealth this port?

    thanks in advance

    Additional: Found the SSHD entry, but it says disabled, yet port still showing...

    any ideas?

    check your port forwarding settings. You might have a service using port 22 you are trying to forward.

    What version of dd-wrt built are you running?

    hi, thanks for the reply.

    No port forwarding being used (range or single).

    I am using v23-final (dd-wrt.v23_generic.bin). On a WRT54GL.

    ssh is disabled by default. Unless you have enabled it through the GUI (Administration -> Services) it shouldn't be responding to a port scan from the LAN. A port scan from the Internet should not respond (should be stealthed) unless you enable remote access (Administration -> Management). What scam are you running?

    1) Right I have no ports forwarded.

    2) (Administration -> Services) SSH is disabled

    3) (Administration -> Management) is enabled, but NOT for https and for port 33333. So I would have expected port 33333 to be showing as closed but not 22.

    4) What scam are you running?

    Disabled remote management and port 22 now stealthed. Seems a bit strange that enabling remote management should expose port 22 ssh even when I am not using it and the remote port is on 33333.

    a bug?

    This does pose a bit of a problem though as I need remotte admin access to the router but DON'T want the port 22 showing.

    Port 22 isn't showing up even with remote management enabled here.

    Anyway if you must have it "stealthed" then try forwarding port 22 to a non-existant IP address.
