Dear List,

My internet connection is via mobile broadband. The ifconfig lists
the ppp0 with IP address,

ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          inet addr:120.165.xx.xxx P-t-P: Mask:
          RX packets:5239 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:6371 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
          RX bytes:3867747 (3.6 MiB) TX bytes:1020544 (996.6 KiB)

I tried to remote login (using ssh) to this IP address from another
machine but failed.

The following message appears,

ssh: connect to host 120.166.xx.xxx port 22: Connection timed out

Editing /etc/sysconfig/iptables and add --dport 22 -j Accept does not help.

Could any one please provide some suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
