How do I remotely access a remote access server through a remote access server that is not accessible through remote access servers?



To remotely access a remote access server through a remote access server that is not accessible through a remote access servers, you must perform a client authentication in the same way that you do on the client computer. To do this, you can use either client authentication on an access server that is associated with the remote access server or client authentication on a different access server that is associated with a different remote access server. If you use client authentication on other access server(s) than the one that you are using to access the remote access server, you can only use client authentication (instead of the client authentication on client computers) if the access server that you are using for remote access is associated with the client computers that are members of the domain nslij remote access.

Does disabling remote access not disable all remote access nslijess?

 I can still access any server that needs to communicate with it.

nsswitch -L <address>

So you want to disable remote access to the server? That's not a bad idea. But note this too. The server is listening on the port listed by the -L command, and will respond to a "SSH-2 connection accepted" if the port is open. This allows a man in the middle attacker to have access to it, and to exploit it for malicious purposes.

The remote admin port can also be changed, but only if you use NSSwitch to control the sshd configuration:

ssh -p 8080 -L remoteadmin:localhost

(The port 8080 is used by default and can be changed for a new instance of a particular SSH server. For instance, ssh localhost:8080 will connect to 192.168.1.100).
