No problems connecting to SSH, but not leaving it on means one has to logon to the interface and enable SSH and then use the SSH and then via the web interface disable SSH when done.
I find this very cumbersome. There are at least two solutions to this I can think of without investigating any further:
Set SSH for local LAN ONLY.
Edit you sshd_config (this is normally in /etc/ssh #Port 22 *(or any other port)* #AddressFamily any #ListenAddress 0.0.0.0 *(your local lan, even one IP)* #ListenAddress ::
Now is that possible with IPFire?
Second is to build in a Terminal with IPFire WebInterface, like CockpitProject…
is there any plugin that does this?
