Pfsense ssh'd me into router instead of server without password
disclaimer: i probably dont know what im talking about.
always-on-pc that i reach by SSH'ing to my domain name, and pfsense NAT's it forward to port 22 on server.
I was working from home on work laptop, through work VPN. When I do this, then I have to Putty into my external domain name to reach my server instead of using the local LAN server name. All working fine. I use ssh keys for this.
Normally, when I disconnect from works VPN, if I try to SSH to the external domain name, it fails to reach the host. I have to use another Putty profile to reach the local server name.
But not recently! I disconnected from work, and tried to Putty into the external domain name (did this by accident) and got a completely different prompt! I had been logged into the actual pfsense router without supplying any credentials. It used the key file for my server to authenticate me. I have not investigated further. Is it "just me" or is there something I missed?
Maybe you put your SSH key into pfSense in a user (System > User Manager)? Seems the most likely explanation.
