prescient shell | Port forwarding

Recommended Posts

Good day guys, 

I received my lan turtle a few weeks ago. 

It's been working great. I've had it setup to digitalocean box with Autossh


Today I wanted to switch it over to my home office and have it autossh to a VM 

I'm probably missing something very basic. 

I've looked over the video Darren as done at for prescient shell and autossh


Ok setup working backward.


Kali Light (VM) - XenServer - Untangle router/firewall - Modem - Outside

I have Untangle port forwarding to XXXX to Kali light to port 22

I'm able to make a SSH connection using XXXX from the outside fine.

I've set up keys fine. 

But when logged into Kali Light and I try to loop back to the turtle by doing a ssh root@localhost -p 2222 I get an error
Connect to host localhost port 2222: connection refused. 


Am I missing something very basic? it's usually the case lol...

new network, possibly new firewall too. Be sure the port isn't blocked going out as well as in. I'm no expert, but try port 443 as a test to see if it works. If it does, then you know something is blocking port 2222
