So you have installed SLES 11 on your POWER system, but for some odd reason you can't get a ssh too the server to work. You can ssh out, and the daemon is up and running as you would expect, the IP tables is all empty, so what can the issue be?
In this case its the firewall -
SuSEfirewall2_setup 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
SuSEfirewall2_init 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
So you can stop it as follows -
Just make sure you perform the actions in the order above else the command will fail, this is due to the two services being tided into each other.
