Question

SSH blocked at work, can't access even when changing ports

Posted December 2, 2014 3k views

I’d like to access my VPS through SSH at work, but it seems its blocked. I tried changing ports and it still doesn’t work. I get this message when I try to connect:

ssh: connect to host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 25552: Bad file number

I have some scripts running on my VPS that I’d like to be able to maintain and check up on. Is there a way to bypass this block?

If you need to access your Droplet from work, then the right solution is to convince The powers that be.

If you are not running web server on your droplet, you may change the port to 443(https).
