Setting AIX box at home.

Hi guys...
I have got a old Aix box i.e. 7043 - 150 for home experimenting purposes. I am having some issues to setup the tcpip on it correctly, so that i can access it within the network and also from outside i.e. work.

My setup looks like this:

Modem ----> Apple airport wireless router -----> AIX Box

I have AIX 5.3 installed on it.

Right now i have my setting like this:

HOSTNAME: testlpar
Internet address: (range is withing my local network)
Subnet mask:
Network interface: en0

Name server:
internet address: 10.XX.XX.XX (public ip address on wireless router)
domain: ( (took from wireless router)
Default gateway:

I am able to ping to the box from my laptop and vice versa within the network, but whenever im using Putty to connect (telnet or ssh, also within my network) im getting an error unable to connect to host.

Please if anyone can solve my problem, especially if i did the settings right or not?

Do you have your SSH server running on your AIX box? Try these:
hostname:/:$ ps -ef | grep sshd$
    root  5636284  3211444   0   Dec 26      -  0:18 /usr/sbin/sshd
hostname:/:$ netstat -an | grep 22.*LISTEN
tcp4       0      0  *.22                   *.*                    LISTEN
