Isn't there any sort of portforwarding thing?  Such as forward port 2222 (I
wouldn't use that one, it's too common, but as an example) to,
and then have listen on port 2222?  Then have a firewall rule
to allow access on that port and edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config to listen on
2222 instead of 22.

Looking at
it seems as if it would allow this and it's described in the section WAN
Virtual Server/Port Fowarding.
