Wot's this, you might ask.
Your ssh server identifies itself. "Hey there, I'm SSH Version bar.foo!"
It then expects a response. The poor thing never gets one.

Your problem is either here...

Something's stopping your masqued client from talking to your SSH server.
You need to isolate one from the other. Can your masqued client login to anything
using SSH? Tell ya what, you could try to login to redbrick.dcu.ie (port 22) as
some user, if you can succesfully get an unsuccessful login attempt (i.e. wrong
username/password combination), your ssh client has at least identified itself
to that ssh server correctly.
