The "VoIP box" is usually an MTA, many include a router/firewall also.
It should have an admin interface usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
The cable company technical support should be able to walk you through
getting access (or check any documentation that came with the MTA)
They may or may not have port options (open or forward) that may allow
ssh to work for you.
