Thanks!  I'll have to try out that method also.  I did, however, get
everything setup to do what I wanted it to...

At work, we're behind a firewall, and can only access the internet thru
a proxy server.  I cannot therefore connect normally to my home network
using ssh.  I found a perl script on the web (ssh-tunnel.pl) that allows
one to tunnel ssh thru ssl, which _will_ pass thru the proxy server.  I
only had to setup another instance of sshd at home to listen on port
443, and I was then able to connect.  I can now "ssh" thru the proxy
server to my home firewall/router, and then "ssh" from there into my
desktop machine which resides behind the firewall.  I was able to
forward X over the ssh connection...it was pretty cool to run X
applications on my home machine from the work machine (I know that this
is probably "old hat" to many of you, but I felt a sense of accomplishment 
managing to do it thru two firewalls and a proxy server).  :-)
