Although I could not find it in yast, so I went into the file /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 and found that line, and made it look like this:
FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT="0.0.0.0/0,tcp,22"

Point of order:  this will open ssh to the world.  Do you really want to do this, George?
You might want to consider swapping the IP of your client laptop with the 0.0.0.0.

There are other things you might consider doing too, among them disabling username/password

Or rather, put my ip address from the smaller laptop here and see how that works.
