Do you mean that you can connect with ssh, but it later hangs?
If that's the case, I see this with RH based systems fairly often.
There's a few bugs open, but no real consensus on what's going on. It
seems to have something to do with the ip contrack module, and the
network itself.

What I do is get rid of the "--state NEW" requirement for port 22.
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp  -m tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
