If I understand correctly what you asking:
You will need to option your router to port forward port 80 requests
from the WAN interface to the static IP Address of the computer on your
LAN you want them to go to.
If those "laptops" are in your LAN, you will have to option firestarter
on the computer in question to allow connections on service port 22 from
your laptops in your LAN IP Address range.
If those "laptops" are on the WAN (Internet), you will have to option the
router to port forward port 22 requests to the static IP Address of the
computer on your LAN you want them to go to.
In case I misunderstood you, I agree with Andrei, this thread has strayed
far enough from the original topic to be worthy of starting a new thread.
In any case, I advise you do that to make sure enough people look at it
for good peer review.
