Hi, I have a problem with logging in to centos via ssh. I can log in inside the network, but I can not be outside the network. I get a login, enter my login, enter my login password and I have the "access denied" message. What is the problem?
are you attempting to be 'root'? If so, logn as a normal user, then 'su' to root once in. Well worth the extra step for your system security (check /var/log/secure to see attempts to get in with the root account).
Is there some sort of a NAT involved? If you, for example, run ssh www.example.com to access your webserver via ssh, chances are that you are actually connecting to your NAT router when you try to do that from outside your network. The router may forward http and https ports to the web server in your LAN, that's why the web server's connectivity may be different. Just a guess, there may be other reasons as well.
