Solved SSH Setup & ISP's Address

June 23, 2012 at 10:19:47
Specs: Windows 7
When trying to setup SSH, using Putty & dd-wrt on a WNDR 3700, the whois.com information shows my ISP's address. Is this not supposed to be my router's IP address under the SSH configuration?

Do you understand in the example the ip of your router is what is supposed to show?
That doesn't change.

All the author is showing you is that connected from a wifi spot you get the wan ip showing for the wifi spot. The second screen is showing home routers wan ip so you know the ssh proxy is working since its not showing the wifi spots ip

The router, for example...

I set up SSH through Putty with a tutorial from How-To-Geek. At the end of the tutorial his WHOIS address was changed, however... mine wasn't.

I was under the impression that when you set up SSH, the IP address at WHOIS.com should be your router's IP address, such as 75.50.25.1 or 192.168.1.1, not my service provider's IP.

So you are saying that you are connecting to some device over the internet. You feel that whois ought to return the IP of this remote device?

Hang up and live.

yes sir, I was under the impression that moving to a secure SSH would do that... am I misinformed?

Just for clarification:

I flashed my WNDR with dd-wrt firmware.
Set up the configuration for SSH
Installed & set up Putty
Navigated to the Whois directory

And there was no change in the identifying IP address. Is there not supposed to be a change in the IP as mentioned on How-To-Geek?

armandmarius can you clarify your post? Right now it means nothing since it has no context.

Thanks wanderer... I get it now. I am connected through the LAN. I read somewhere that even though I use a LAN using SSH is the way to go. My wife's pc is a laptop and when she goes to the WHOis.com query page she gets the hotspot's ip...

thank you so much for clarifying that for me....


thank you too Jefo for trying to assist, as well as Armand.
