Contacting a linux box behind a vicious cable internet firewall?

OK. I have a debian machine on a cable internet connection and I want to
ssh into it from the outside.

Currently can't do it. The Cable ISP blocks ALL ICMP traffic which
certainly doesn't help.

My first thought is to set the machine up to punch a stunnel connection
through to dedicated server in a fixed location. Then I ssh into that
dedicated server (to a special port #) and that get me connected to the
firewalled box.

Is this the best way to go?

The cable ISP refreshes DHCP leases regularly - can stunnel handle the
change in IP # OK?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

We could ask ICANN to send WIPO a clue, but do they have any to spare?
