New guy, so go easy. I have a box running FC27 and all I want to do is be able to ssh into it from outside the router. I have port forwarding set up appropriately on the router. I know this is working properly because I have two other Linux boxes with properly and working forwarded ports. None of the ports I am trying to forward are blocked by my ISP. I have sshd_config properly configured to listen on the forwarded port. SELinux is disabled. I can easily putty into the box via ssh from within the LAN, but no matter what I try, I can't get to it externally. I can't help but think that there is something in my Linux configuration that is preventing WAN access, but being a Linux novice, I don't know where else to look. Thoughts?

Nothing obviously wrong from your description. I assume the FC27 box is configured with a static IP or DHCP reservation and have verified the router is configured correctly.

You can try using ssh verbose option to add debug information which might provide a clue

ssh -vvv -p port user@WAN_IP_address
