ok first off you dont have to port forward your router unless you are connecting to your lan from the outside internet (ie.. coffee shop wifi connection back through your router to you ssh server). what client are you using? are you trying to run your sshd on your laptop and connect to it through the loopback adapter (ie.. or are you running your sshd on a separate machine?

Have you actually tried this while you are at home? Can you SSH into it while you are on your LAN? This would be the first thing to test before you try connecting remotely with port forwarding.

Also, have you made sure you have no firewall rules blocking incoming connections on your home computer? Windows Firewall or something? You can also test this by port scanning your home PC and seeing if port 443 is open.

If all of the above is fine and you can connect while on your LAN. Start looking at your router and your NAT rules. Perhaps try port forwarding a simpler service to test it actually works, like a webserver, ftp or something simple.

Good luck.
