I have been using WebMO Pro 9.0 in an intranet server. Now, I moved my WebMO server to the internet, but my remote servers are in the local network.

My network manager created rules in the firewall to map a given address:port to my local servers. I can connect remotely to this local servers using SSH.

Now I add the new address to WebMO as: address:port (the port in use is not 22 any more), but it complains about passwordless SSH.

Any ideas about this problem?

Best regards,

I would use the "-p" option for SSH to change the port instead. Modify the sshOptions flag in the WebMO configuration, globals.int.

Do that, and delete/add the remote server. Also verify that you can passwordless SSH from the WebMO server to the remote server on the command line, as the user "webmo", using those same options.

Thank you. I did what you suggested me, almost, because adding only the "-p" option did not work, I have to add the port. After doing that I am getting a new error:

Could not find remote Perl installation

As I modified the "globals.int", this will only work for one local server.

The other local servers have different ports to access them, so if I modify again the globals.int, the previous configured server will work?
