Also check if you use a router that your port isnt being blocked by your in-built firewall.

try stopping the ssh daemon and try to run 1 instance of an ssh server to debug with:
sudo /sbin/service sshd stop
sudo /usr/sbin/sshd -d -d -d
and then use putty to see if the server is trying to connect. it could possibly complain about something with rsa/ dsa keys.
