Same problem here. My ssh server is listening on port 22 but I want it
to respond externally to port 443 (proxy issues). When I had NAT setup
with both ext and int port 22 it worked fine, but when I changed ext
port to 443, keeping int port at 22 I get no forwarding. The firewall
rule is still in place on the WAN allowing connections to the IP
address of the ssh server on port 22 and logging. When I attempt to
connect ssh on port 443 it times out and m0n0 doesn't log anything.

So it seems port forwarding works if the internal and external ports
are the same, but not otherwise.
