Smells like NTHell. :)

It is straightforward to work around it. Get an account at one
of those dynamic dns places like www.no-ip.com or www.dyndns.com.
If your router doesn't support ddns, you will need a client
running on a machine at home to update it each time your ip
Then forward ssh traffic from the router to a computer on your
lan, and hop from that machine to the others as required.
Feel free to use a non-standard port for ssh, deny root login,
restrict login to specified users or from specified ip addresses
/ ranges, whatever you want really...
