But, I don't think this is a configuration problem at either end.
The OP said the ssh link goes down 5-6 times a day, so it works most
of the time.
The only thing that has changed is the WAN link.
The binding problem is most likely a red herring.
My guess is that the real problem is most likely to be due to some
deep packet inspection/policy being applied by the ISP.
