Weird Eero and SSH issue that I am 100% sure is operator error.
I have a weird Eero and SSH issue that I am 100% sure is operator error.
If I set the port forwarding to go to my mac's wifi connection, I'm able to SSH from an external network.
If I set it to go to my mac's ethernet connection (it's a mac mini) I am NOT able to SSH from an external network.
I'm setting this by going to Settings Advanced, Reservations & Port Forwarding and then adding a reservation. Other port forwarding that I've set up for Screens Connect and my Plex server seem to work on either "device" (meaning the wifi or ethernet). Maybe there is no practical benefit of one over the other but at this point I'm just trying to figure out and learn what I'm doing wrong.
Any idea what stupid mistake I'm making?
Most devices have different mac ids for their ethernet card and their wireless card. When a router assigns an IP address, it assigns it by the mac address. Check in your app to see if you are seeing your device connecting up under a different IP address which you will need to setup port forwarding on as well.
Let me know how that turns out,
