Trying to establish ssh connection to my own computer. Running cygwin on Windows 7. Have openssh installed using this guide:

Using port 2000 because router doesn't allow port forward on 22 (rogers smcd3gn router).

Ssh localhost -p 2000. SSH connects locally.

Ssh -p 2000. SSH connects internal network.

Ssh my.ip.address -p 2000. SSH connection to port 2000 timed out.

Checked firewall, have inbound/outbound allowing TCP 2000. says port 2000 is open. Even set my computer as DMZ in router page. What did I miss that caused this connection to time out?
