We're going to need more detail on exactly how you're doing this.  Send detailed
information on the IP addresses you want to allow access, as well as what firewall
program you're using (IPFW? ipf?) and your current firewall rules.

The short answer, however, is that you open port 22 for the IPs that you want to
allow access.

Before you do this, however, turn _OFF_ the firewall and make sure you can access
via ssh.  If not, then the firewall has nothing to do with your problem.

It depends on which firewall you're using.  Please send specifics.

There is no such thing.  FreeBSD ships with an ssh client (called "ssh")  You
don't need PuTTY.  PuTTY was developed for Windows.
