My firewall is set to allow 2977.

Just for shits I changed this to 29770

I ran: system-config-securitylevel-tui and customized and added  
29770:tcp to other ports

I then: nano /etc/ssh/ssh_config and said Port 29770

So that I have:
Host *
Port 29770
Protocol 2

I then did: service sshd restart

and I still get connection refused. Comment out Port 29770 and all is  
well again.
