This is common on every system I have ever loaded  with FC2
your iptables are blocking the connection
you can do one of the following:
iptables -A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 - j ACCEPT
or plonk this line into your /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 - j ACCEPT

should work,

how to work with it.
