Actually, it turns out I was wrong - The packets I saw in tcpdump were just
the console updates from the server I was connected to, in order to connect
back to myself :) Also, the local network uses VPN and NAT, which is why an
ordinary connection doesn't work. That just leaves the mystery of why my
setup worked on SUSE. I'll be using my home PC as the server instead - Much
less hassle.

Thanks anyway!
