It's a long story.. lets just say they're using a VPN that I can't get to

If you're using Windows VPN, why not just connect to their box on Telnet
or FTP ports and/or SSH from your PC directly to their network.

Oy maybe if I read it right you don't have a Windows machine which would

I believe there are Linux based PPTP clients available for MS VPN.

That was from QSH from their system. sysname was their IP address.

Yes, that's all I get. I don't have VPN on my linux system to connect to
their system. They use a crappy old windows VPN.

SSHD was started, and verified it should be up and running in NETSTAT.

I'm more confused than you are. Trust me. I don't know how it goes from
working to not when no one has touched anything.

Are you saying that when you sit at your local workstation and type:
*ssh -v -v -v bvstone@sysname*
all that you get on the screen is:
