    It needs to be setup on your router (modem). Have a look at this site for step by step tutorials. I recommend against running ssh on port 22 if you are doing this as you will have a constant stream of bots/dictionary attacks trying to log on. Pick a random higher port and change this in your /etc/ssh/sshd_config and restart sshd.
