Yes, but its typical to change the _Default_ ports for firewalls. Ssh
access should still be possible to your smoothwall by supplying the port
(with the -p switch)
ssh -p 222 <your external ip> -l <user>
Similarly for web access try https://<your external ip>:441/

ssh is port 22, not 222
hhtps is 443, not 441
