Thread: Allow SSH on port 443

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Allow SSH on port 443

    Because from university I can only use port 443, I want to use SSH to my router on this port!
    I don't want to change the port the SSH-server listens, because I want to use it from the internal network.
    It works if I add the following IPTABLES rules
    iptables -D INPUT -j DROP
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 443 -j DNAT --to-destination $4:22
    But then, all ports are open
    If I add
    iptables -A INPUT -j DROP
    it doesn't work anymore.
    What do I need to change?

    Try this code in your post-boot:

    # Activate SSH
    dropbear -p 22 -p 443

    And change your post-firewall code:

    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $1 -p tcp --dport 22 -j DNAT \
    --to-destination $4:22
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $1 -p tcp --dport 443 -j DNAT \
    --to-destination $4:443
    iptabled -A FORWARD -i $1 -o $3 -p tcp --dport 22 -d $4 -j ACCEPT
    iptabled -A FORWARD -i $1 -o $3 -p tcp --dport 443 -d $4 -j ACCEPT

    You can connet to your router at port 22 and 443, too.


    ps: and sorry my English.
