22.2.1. Procedure – Organizing connections based on port numbers

Purpose: 

To allow the administrators to access protected servers by connecting to the IP address of PSM, and use the port number to select which server they want to access. Organizing connections based on port numbers is advantageous if PSM has a public IP address and the protected servers must be administered from the Internet.

Note

Do not use the listening addresses configured for web login. For more details, see Procedure 4.3.1, Configuring user and administrator login addresses.

For details on configuring alias IP addresses, see Procedure 4.3.2, Managing logical interfaces.

Steps: 

  1. Navigate to the Connections tab of the SSH Control menu.

  2. Add a new connection. Enter the IP address of the administrators into the From fields, and the IP address and port number of the server into the Target field.

  3. Enter the IP address of the logical interface of PSM into the To field, and enter a port number into the Port field.

  4. Repeat Steps 2-3 for every protected server, but every time use a different port number in Step 3.
