Yup. I got a Netgear ISDN router. I had it set to forward *only* the non-
standard port, but for some reason that doesn't appear to be working. 
However, I got into the router and re-enabled the port 22 forward and it's 
working now. I don't like having that port enabled though, so I'm going to 
have to play with it and see if I can't get the non-standard port working 
again... funny thing, it *was* working in FC6. I think I'll back up the 
current sshd_config and copy the one from FC6 in and see if that makes a 
difference.
