Re: tunneling with ssh
You can't have static address given to you by a server, that would make it dynamic.
I'm guessing your "static address" is actually an internal ip address i.e 192.168.x.x ; 172.16.x.x 10.x.x.x and your system talks to the internet through a proxy server.
if this is the case then you'll need a route that allows the correct protocol to be transverse to the server in question on the correct port, then the proxy or firewall that forwarded your request, will need know the original senders addresses from it's NAT table in order to forward the response back.
This question is unanswerable without knowing the proxy software, access lists, routing tables and the physical network design/layout..
