— cool thanks . Yes, now that you mention it I could also forward my external port to internal port 22. That’s a good tip for me.
Thanks for the thoughts and tips on staring a new sshd. I will try this at some point. I think you gave me enough to go on.
And, I trust linux to be secure—I don’t trust myself to understand all the config issues so I get nervous with security. That’s why I prefer to stick with the easy menus on OMV when I can. (I’ve really come to appreciate the OMV set up and menus—so thanks to he OMV team). You point out all the places I need to be aware, and so that helps me relax.
