I would suggest you learn how to manipulate the firewall it comes with or 
install a firewall you know how to manipulate.  I would not go so far as to 
say Saybayon is locked-down.  It is setup to allow only established 
connection back in which is what most default firewall installation do.  You 
should have been able to ssh from the saybayon box to the box that had the 
tar file, provided you were allowed to make a connection to said box.
