Use the internal network IP numbers for this.
e.g. the router has a IP address on the outside world. And a IP on the inside (your private network).
Your FC machines also have a private IP adress wich isn't directly accessable on the net, by default.
If you know these addresses of the FC machines (issue ifconfig command) then you can access the machines by these addresses.
fc3 has 192.168.1.10
fc4 has 192.168.1.20
if you want to ssh from fc3 to fc4 issue a command like:
and vise versa...
