Strange question I know, but I need to be able to access one of my machines, postie, remotely. I've got sshd(8) running and can ssh(1) to it from a local machine using it's local hostname. However, since I only have a single 'net connection here I tried to test connecting remotely by ssh(1)'ing to my router's 'net-facing hostname but I get
ssh: connect to host <router_hostname> port 22: Connection refused
Port 22 is forwarded to postie on the router.
Given time and sufficient determination, you ought to be able to make this work, but it's a real pain--

I think that answers my question - it won't work the way I'm trying it. As I said, this was just an attempt to test connecting from outside; guess I'll have to wait until I get to work tomorrow and try it from there (which is where I really want to connect from), it's just that if it doesn't work I'll have to wait until I get home to change things - a bit of a pain.
Thanks for the answer.
