Well, I think that the OM solution is good, btw according to the
dropebear man (and code), it should be possible to put more than a
port/ip to the "allowed list".
That's why I've tried to add as
This should allow the ssh server to listen on these two IP:port
combinations (the first one if for USB and the 2nd is the one I use with
wifi at home) but it doesn't work (i.e. after that I've no permissions
both via usb and via wifi).
Any idea?
