    For our local group of WRT54G users I have written a tutorial how to establish a secure SSH connection from a remote location over the internet to the WRT54G and how to use services (HTTP, VNC, FTP ...) running on the WRT54G itself or on computers in your LAN through a SSH tunnel. Maybe this useful for other people, too.

    i use alchamy 1.0 final

    i enable sshd on port 443 in the web interface Created key and so on according the manual...

    then i telnet into the router and at the promt line pasted the following command base on the instruction......

    - make the ssh workable via WAN
    /usr/sbin/iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --dport [b]443[/b] -j logaccept
    then i paste the next code

    nvram set rc_firewall="/usr/sbin/iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --dport 443 -j logaccept"
    nvram commit

    -- but when i try to log into the router with the internal ip
    i get this network error connection time out.. and when i tried to ssh into the router from WAN i get time out error also...

    if i change the port into 22 via the web interface then i can log in with the inter ip
