Hello All:

I am trying to ssh to my Linux Redhat 7.2 computer behind a Linksys
router. The ssh software is not able to connect. It says something to
the effect that the "remote computer is not available".

I have the port 22 open for the computer on the Linksys router. Some
weeks ago a different computer that I had on the net was accessible
via telnet without any problems.
Also, I am able to ssh to the Linux computer within my internal
network without any problem. In other words, ssh client software and
ssh services on Linux are working properly.

If it matters, I am on attbi cable modem.

What could be the other issues that I should check into?
