ssh: Connection timed out. [from school]


i used putty ssh client at school to try to connect to my computer at home but i kept getting "Connection Timed Out".

my ssh IS running. i checked as soon as i got home.
my router has the port forwarded.
there is no firewall set up on this system.
i searched around and someone suggested to use traceroute to see where it has problems but the trace completed:
Code:

Trace Complete.
the ping is unusually high. im not sure how to read this but there it is.

i also checked to see if it was the school blocking anything outgoing. i ssh'd to my friends box in another state and it worked like a charm. so the problem must lie in my system. any ideas?

my hosts.allow has 2 lines:
ALL:ALL
sshd:ALL

help. thanks in advance.

p.s. i was downloading from torrent at at least 90Kb/sec. would the use of all this bandwidth cause ssh to time out?

edit: ssh 127.0.0.1 -p 300 works. (i have ssh port assigned to 300)

Perhaps your ISP is blocking incomming on port 22 or your chool outgoing on port 22. If you don't have a webserver running on that machine then try running ssh on port 80 and ssh to port 80 when you are in school.
