Is there a firewall running on the server that is blocking port 22?

Usually if there is a firewall running on the box, entries will be found
in syslog, but your logs are quiet.

A default sshd_config has ListenAddress set to, if it were set
to anything other than the network IP address, that would cause an issue

Otherwise, I'd make sure the router is actually forwarding port 22 to
the right box.
As I mentioned, I can see the firewall forwarding the connection to the server. 

I've found some ISPs block port 22 to their customers.  In that case, a
port above 1024 can be used and the router can then forward that
connection to the server on port 22.
I changed it to 2222 and still get the same issue. As with 22, after I change the port to 2222 I can successfully ssh to the box from within the LAN.

Nevermind. I changed the forward to another box and can't get to it either so it has to be something in the firewall capturing the connection despite it showing a clean passthru.

Thank you for your help guys! Sorry for the false alarm.
