Do you have any type of firewall running on the SuSE box? Iknow on RH, you can run lokkit to config the firewall, I would assume there is something like that on SuSE.

For active connections, run netstat -av from command line.

Hi tiang,

try doing

iptables -L

to see, if this port is blocked or if the default policy is to allow for incoming connections.

If denied, try typing

iptables -A INPUT -i <incoming-interface-address> -p TCP -dport 22 -j ACCEPT

Perhaps this will solve the problem.

For further information: There you can find a HOWTO on firewalls and many other things.
