Ok. So assumably you can login to your machine locally first off, 
correct? Second off, are you operating between two interfaces or just 
one? I would assume 2 since you're talking about external and internal 
networks. So, you might want to check how your packets are being routed 
between the interfaces and the 'static' routes setup between your 
machine where you are currently located and the server.

As for the SSH... that's fishy... logging in locally would be the first 
step I would try in determining the issue at hand. Then check the CPU 
usage of all of your processes to make sure you don't have a runaway 
task such that your authentication is being effectively blocked.

Also, did you comment out some of the lines in /etc/ttys?
