Yes, if a firewall were blocking it, you would get a "Connection refused" instead of "Permission denied". If you are using TCP wrappers on ssh, remove that. If you don't know what that means, you're not doing it. Try adding the "-v" flags to sshd, not just the connecting ssh. To do that without rebooting, I think you need to kill your existing sshd and run it again from the command line. If you put 'sshd_flags="-vv"' in /etc/rc.conf, it will be done automatically at every boot (until you remove the line again). I think that the debug messages will go into /var/log/messages.
