Open up yast, then in the security section is the firewall. Check if SSH is listed in allowed services.

A couple of things to check:

- Is SSHD running on the SuSE box? It should be by default, but always worth checking this first...
     Use /etc/init.d/sshd status
     to find out

- SuSE installs a firewall by default, check that SSH (port 22) is allowed through the firewall

Set up a port forwarding rule on your router to forward port 22 to whatever your internal IP is. eg 192.168.x.x
