Alternate SSH Port


#1

Is there an alternate SSH port I can access besides Port 22? Is there a way to select a specific port for access in the Dreamhost Control Panel?

I am trying to use SSH from behind a corporate firewall and it appears Port 22 is blocked. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!


#2

Is there any way you can request port 22 be opened for you at work? I’m almost positive there isn’t any “alternative” SSH port on DreamHost… though I could be wrong.


#3

I could request it but then I would be undermining my attempt to provide a secure tunnel for nefarious internet access via a proxy.

I sure hope there is another way to gain access to SSH. Any other suggestions are welcome.

The last time this question was asked, I recall someone suggested obtaining a free SSH account at rootshell.be, which has an alternate browser-based interface, and SSHing from there to DreamHost.

Have you tried to telnet out from work? I am assuming if 22 is blocked, 23 will be too…but worth a try.

I’ve already applied for an account and am patiently awaiting the email invitation from rootshell.be. I’ll update my status once I get logged in. Thanks for the suggestion.

You are welcome, but I was just relaying a suggestion made by ‘schietschijf’ in a previous thread. :wink:

Thanks, it’s nice when people return to the forums to report on the success (or failure) of suggestions, as it can help others in the future.

Good luck and I hope it works for you.
