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

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

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