Unable to SSH via Internet


Mar 11, 2020
Hello everyone,

I have moved from Ovirt on CentOS 7 to Promox recently - which was a really easy process.
So far everything runs better than before but unfortunately SSH is only working from one direction.

My server has two NICs: 1x LAN & 1x WAN (via a Fritzbox LAN).
I am able to reach Proxomox via the LAN side via a VPN tunnel but unfortunately not via the WAN interface althought ports are forwarded on the Fritzbox as well as SSH is set to listen to any interface (

Any ideas what else I could try?
Is the firewall activated? (datacenter->firewall-options)
