First, after entering the above command on the local host (alfa, Linux),
is it possible to connect back again to local host using ssh through the
router's (netsreen) external ip address, i.e. something similar to

ssh 22

or possibly log this using another command?

Isn't there any log file from/for the SuseFirewall2 that tells if and
which communication attempts (type) that has occured or has been
rejecteded? Or are this only logged for each service type like already
mentioned for ssh in /var/log/messages?
