Does the SMC have the Remote Management feature in the customer interface able to be turned on and off?
If so, is it on?
If you have that much experience with networking, why are you using the router in a Shaw modem? Or are they still unable to enable bridge mode on plans slower than 50mbps?
If your friend, or anybody else outside your LAN, able to even get a telnet connection to port 22?
I have never had good experiences with SMC routers.
1) No, there is no way to administer the Remote Management system, otherwise I would just disable it and be on my way. Shaw also refuses to admit it is enabled, despite the router saying it is.
2) The last router that I had from shaw took a combined 6 hours on the phone to finally get them to disable the gateway and put it in bridged mode, so I was hoping to avoid that again.
3) I can forward every single port except for 22. telnet, http, AIM, all of the predefined services work, and I have some others like VNC and Tor running on "customer defined" forwarding as well. It is just port 22 that won't forward. There is nothing else wrong with the router. It is extremely frustrating.
