What type of router are we talking about here? Is it your own machine you have setup as a router or 3rd party router like Linksys or Netgear, etc? More details gets better responses.

Could you elaborate some more. You have a linux box working as a router or external router? You don't have a firewall, so every port should be open? You want to open ssh-port to where? To the router? To some machine behind your router-box?

Oh.. you allready answered to some of those.

Do you have an internet-wide IP-address or does this router nat your local address?

ok. If you haven't configured any firewall (and the router won't block packets), then just having ssh daemon running should do the trick.

What does it say if you try to take ssh connection to your ip addrress?

Try ssh -v [ip]
(it probably blocks to "debug1: Connecting to hostname [ip] port 22.")

What distribution you are having? Is there some default firewall configured?
What does the command 'iptables -v -L' say?

-You can do it by ssh:ing to some other internet-connected computer first.

-And the iptables -v -L gives empty chains with all having default policy accept?

-One thing to check: Does 'ssh localhost' work?
