    You need port 22, which is ssh. You can enable this in syst preferences, sharing, remote login.

    If you look at your messages, it looks like you need to listen to port 1122 for ssh.  You should figure out where you've set it to connect to port 1122 and change it back to port 22 or set the ssh port to 1122.

    Which system is running as the server?  Your Mac?

    The Application Firewall should be enabled by default in your Security & Privacy System Preferences.  You should add your program to the Allowed list of Applications, or you should disable the Application Firewall and start using ipfw.  You can also edit ssh to listen on port 1122 instead of port 1122.
