It sounds like one of two possibilities:
1. a firewall issue
2. ssh server is not installed, or enabled.

Which distributions are you running?  Is either of them Ubuntu?  Last 
time I installed Ubuntu 8.10, the ssh client was installed, but the ssh 
server was not, by default.  If that is the case then:
  $ sudo apt-get install openssh-server

You can see if there are any firewall rules by checking iptables:
  $ sudo iptables --list
