Unable to SSH into daemon from external network

Postby robo731 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 10:40 pm

I have setup the daemon on my server (Ubuntu) as described on the wiki. When I go to connect from a computer outside of my local network however, I get the following error:

Code: Select all

bind: Address already in use
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 55846
Could not request local forwarding.

I have created the additional loopback alias and I have checked the web UI to confirm that the daemon is running on port 58846.

Any ideas what the problem could be?

The default port is 58846, but you won't be able to SSH right into the daemon. You could SSH into the server that the daemon is running on, but it would be better for you to either use the deluge web interface (deluge-web) or download the deluge client for your external PC then connect to the daemon on port 58846 using the client.

You might also want to setup an OpenVPN server on your router so you can just VPN in as necessary and aren't exposing your local network to the internet.
