When you set up the tunnel, the endpoint on myhomemachine is bound to the
loopback interface. If instead you use "-R *:8080:localhost:80", then the
endpoint will be bound to all interfaces - then http://localhost:8080
and http://myhomemachine:8080 will work. Or you could just bind it to
the ethernet interface with "-R myhomemachine:8080:localhost:80" and then
only http://myhomemachine:8080 will work, but not http://localhost:8080.
