Quick and simple ssh(1) question

Is it correct that you can't ssh(1) between two machines on the same LAN
(using NAT) _via the Internet?_
Strange question I know, but I need to be able to access one of my
machines, postie, remotely. I've got sshd(8) running and can ssh(1) to
it from a local machine using it's local hostname. However, since I only
have a single 'net connection here I tried to test connecting remotely
by ssh(1)'ing to my router's 'net-facing hostname but I get
ssh: connect to host <router_hostname> port 22: Connection refused
Port 22 is forwarded to postie on the router.
It kind of make sense to me that this won't work but I'd like to confirm
that this is the case and it's not my sshd(8) configuration that's wrong.
