I see you found a clue to follow. One very helpful tool in those cases
is the option -v (verbose) on the client:
ssh -v firstname.lastname@example.org
It shows you details of the handshake as it proceeds (try first on a
working connection, to get an idea of what to expect). More "-v"
increase the verbosity.

Turns out the box had a second default gateway by mistake, mine of course. I guess I forgot I manually added the default gateway when the box was in my lab. As it turns out the clue was irrelevant but talking things out here did somehow lead my the the right clue.
