Try using ssh to multiple computers, without changing

I do that every day from my workstation. (which is behind a NAT setup).
The issue is the reverse. With IPv6 I just unblock SSH (TCP/22). Done.
Sooo much simpler.
That is another can of worms, because I currently have a few gadgets with
hardcoded login/password
pairs. Yes, of the kind that you can find listed in manuals and FAQs sites in
Internet. What, have
my TV set with hard disk open to the internet at large, just because I wanted
to open ssh to my main
computer? Ouch! :-(


Why would you're TV be exposed because you opened your workstation's /
server's TCP/22 port. Firewalls can be as granular as you want/need.

Worse, some of them do not support ssh, only telnet. Yes, today, current
And probably, hardware that does not support ipv6, either.
Crap hardware? Sure. But it is what I can buy.
I don't know of any other I can buy that is better in that respect.
I would need a really good entry firewall if I were to have ipv6 adsl.

You'd need a standard / normal firewall. Every firewall can open /
close a specific address / port.
