thanks for your reply.
He should post to the list, not in private.
_If_ you think that the firewall is responsible for the timeouts you might
take a look at your /var/log/firewall
In the firewall log, I have no entries for the machine from which the
connections were initiated (and refused to). How should I interpret
That the firewall is not involved, or that the firewall is not configured
to log those events.
Then you can look at

The hitcount/blockseconds identifiers do not occur in this file...
Not been able to look at the post you are replying to, as it was a private

which would have that effect of limiting to 3 attempts per minute.
Should I investigate other paths than the firewall? Any clues?
Search for ssh related entries en /var/log/messages. Like:
May 2 14:48:04 nimrodel sshd: Accepted publickey for cer from ::1 port 24897 ssh2
You could see a reject. You can also increase verbosity in the sshd log.
