    Could it be you have a routing problem from the SSH server to the firewall machine? The firewall machine knows how to route to the SSH server, but does the SSH server know how to route back to the firewall machine?

    Perhaps the problem is not on the firewall machine, but rather on the SSH server.

    At last!

    Yes, you're right. It was a routing problem because the firewall local network configuration looks like this:
    IP: 10.1.1.254
    MASK: 255.255.255.0
    destination in routing rules: 10.1.1.0

    Configuration of ssh server was:
    IP: 10.1.1.16
    MASK: 255.0.0.0
    destination in routing rules: 10.0.0.0

    I should have thought about this earlier...

    Thank you both for your help, really.

    Could you please educate me a little more?
    What is the better way to define a subnet mask for a 10.1.1.X address: 255.0.0.0 or 255.255.255.0?
    Or maybe this is not important as long as there are the same settings across all LAN computers?
