I think I've nearly got it solved. Thanks to some off-list advice, I've
set the desktop to static IP, and then I found that I had a firewall
blocking inbound ssh on the desktop that needed to be modified (d'oh!).
There was some sketchy certificate stuff, but now I appear to be able to
ssh into the desktop from the laptop.

One more question: how do I configure firestarter to accept inbound ssh
from a range of addresses? My laptop uses dynamic IP addresses, so I'd
like to allow ssh from 192.168.2.{10-20}, or something like that.
