    You just need configure Linksys in Security tab, then forward any
    connection via port 22 to the two boxes.

        Two boxes FC8-i386 behind a Linksys WRT54GL  router, both

        How do I set the router to allow me to connect by port 22 ssh
        to both boxes.

Thanks Waleed that link was very helpful.
But, below, in the part about "Port Forwarding" , Read paragraph below.

A port can only be used by one program at a time! Think of how this rule interacts with NAT. Well you've only got one external ip address on your router. When computer 1 is using port 500, it is using port 500 on it's internal ip address. If you have set up a port forwarding rule for computer 1 and port 500, the external ip address's port 500 is also in use. This means that you can only use port 500 on one computer on the network at a time. Using port 500 on two computers at the same time would violate the one program rule, and your data would get messed up. Most routers require you to specify an internal ip address to forward ports to, just for this reason. Some do not, so be aware of this. Port Forwarding rules will only work for one computer at a time!

This is where my problem is, I have two boxes, different IP's (box 1) (box 2) both set up in router in Port Forwarding as Port 22 and it conflicts with the paragraph above.
How do  I get around this.

The first IP, it allows me to remotely login with correct password. The second IP, won't let me remotely login with correct password "Authenication for user Failed"

Does anyone know how to fix this ?
