Re: ftp/ssh services behind a router and firewall

It depends whether your router supports port-forwarding or not. Hopefully 
it's somewhere in the admin interface. Of course, you could also just make 
your debian box be the firewall, in which case I could give you explicit 
instructions :)

I have just bought a speedtouch 510v4 router. I have a dynamic ip
address which pretty much stays the same.  I'd like to be able to
remotely ssh and ftp into my debian box which sits behind a local firewall.  
How do I get the router's ip address x.x.x.x. to forward from these ports to 
my local address which the router forces to  ?

Am I thinking about this in the right way?

I've messed around with local networks before, but never had a
router to deal with.

thanks very much
