Using DropCopy through an SSH tunnel to a machine internal to a Router

I use ShareTool for screen sharing and file sharing from my laptop to home and use DropCopy constantly at home. How can I arrange DropCopy so it will use the ShareTool tunnel when I'm away -- my home machine is NATed; not an exposed host but has a fixed address on my LAN. I also use dynDNS to link my domain name to the IP address of my router.

I have SSH access to the home network, and I can connect to the gateway machine "Lounge". (e.g. You could then open up a web browser to on the computer you created the tunnel with and up would pop the router interface.
