adsl modem/router with "ssh" server??

Mon Apr 23, 2012 3:21 pm

Any recommendation re a good ADSL 2+ modem/router for home that has support for running an SSH server? Would ideally want the ssh support to include:

* custom port can be defined (not standard ssh port)
* can use certificates for authentication (for extra security)
* can define a set of IP addresses which can use the ssh server

If there isn't anything available in the say $0-$500 range that covers this then what alternatives do you recommend, for example:

* install Tomato firmware perhaps
* sacrifice ssh at the perimeter & just port forward the ssh port to the computer you want to use (and then harden this computer as best possible)


I'll stick with this for the main question however as an aside ideally the device would also have (however these could be sacrificed in order to get my above-mentioned requirements)

* have wireless support (so I have everything in one)
* have a content filtering solution with updates available, working in a transparent proxy mode, with ability to define which internal devices are subject to it
