Running :ext: across a router

In the past I have run a CVS server from a public IP address and been able to access it from anywhere.  I have since been forced to move my system behind a router, and I am no longer able to access it from outside.  I have my router setup to forward incoming traffic on TCP port 22 to the machine where CVS is running, and I have verified that it works, as I can run a shell on that machine.  However, I cannot make CVS requests using the :ext: protocol.

In an attempt to debug this problem myself, I tried capturing traffic across the router while making a request.  Strangely, the only packets coming from the machine where I was making the request were on TCP port 514.  I added another rule to forward this traffic to the CVS server as well, but that did not fix the problem.

I have read through various documentation, all of which seems to be saying that only port 22 is necessary.  Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Chad Hogg
