Hello everyone,

Allow me to preface my problem by saying that I am very ignorant when it comes to networking. I do apologize if this is trivial. In any event, I enabled the "client" ifpw firewall located in /etc/ rc.firewall. This appears to work well for my needs... except for one additional item. I need someone outside of my network to have SSH access to my machine. I know his/her IP address. So, I have added some additional items to rc.firewall for this. Here is what I added.

        # Allow person SSH access
        ${fwcmd} allow tcp from any to any 22 out setup keep-state
${fwcmd} add pass tcp from ${mip} to me 22 setup limit src- addr 2

I have tried many, many differing variations of this from items I have found online. I cannot get any of them to work. My network setup is as follows

internet -> cable modem -> netgear router -> freebsd 6.1-prerelease

This user can SSH into my machine when I set the firewall to "open". Any ideas? _______________________________________________
