Port forwarding for SSH or remote access?

I went in (to the app COX support, because you blocked the firmware option that made it simple and easy), and selected the raspi, told it the port i wanted forwarded, and saved it.  I can now view it, and look at it, but not use it apparently?

I've tried PuTTy and just ssh through cmd/powershell.
