How Do I Access The Same Port On 2 Computers? in Everything Else Posted July 13, 2011 Two solutions, and I recommend the first... 1) change the outside port you connect to. Using default ports typically isn't a good idea. So you can use external port 1337 to internal port 22 on computer1 IP; And use external port 1338 to internal 22 on comp2's IP address. 2) SSH into computer 1, then SSH into computer 2 through computer 1... I do have a question regarding 1) I also setup a nonstandard port to internal 22, however, It wouldn't work untill I set them both to 22 and I am assuming if i changed the ssh settings any two matching ports. (This isn't the first time I have had this problem either ) What is causing this issue? with outside port differing from inside.
