Do i have to use a proxy on my home computer or is there an other way of doing this task without needing an other proxy?
The remote box should not require any forwarding if you have internet access from it. In order to access your home box from the internet you need to know it's ip address. As this is dynamic this can be difficult. You could use www.dyndns.org
to setup a permanent address. Your home box would update their server with the ip address as it changes. You should be able to access the box then by either ip address or name resolution.
The alternate method would be to setup a dial-in facility on the home box and this would then route internet requests through a specified gateway. ssh shouldn't come into the scenario as this really a method of communicating with a box securely.
