Re: [tlug] remote access to server

Thank you all for the suggestions.

Since my plan is to access remotely while traveling via laptop if necessary, it would seem disabling password logins and using the Public/Private key system is the most workable. 

While I do use router firewall to limit the forwarded ports and UFW/GUFW on that server and more complicated systems always appeal, my realistically limited skillset to maintain such a system… (experience has taught…): not there. Managing the underlying Debian OS and programs for the Wordpress CMS alone without destabilizing my local Janga-Tower of Babel seems enough. While probing the deeper waters of nmap, dig, whois, Wireshark, UFW et. al. is interesting, other tasks beckon. 

Simple is the goal, I have a buttload of other deferred self-imposed tasks to deal with before adding yet another. I seem to have this problem of generating ToDo lists, filing them horizontally, then shuffling them around and losing sight of the goal and never really finishing them off. Setting up the ssh key system with a one-and-done seems most reasonable of the options for my situation. 

Thank you all.
