I'm having trouble forwarding a port through PfSense

PfSense is able to ping and ssh .0.6 from local shell, test port works on LAN, but testing from WAN (and attempting ssh over 3g) fails. At a loss, any ideas? enter image description here

Try removing the first WAN rule you have (allowing SSH to the WAN address). You should only need the rule allowing SSH to and the NAT port forwarding rule to forward to

Also, best practice if you're actually using this for SSH would be to limit the protocol on those rules to TCP, which is what SSH uses.
