I've already done that to move SSH to a non-standard port, although I
did now know I could define multiple ports. Neat!

The problem is that even though I have told the the router to pass that
non-standard port through; it does not work.
Advanced port forwarding (e.g. port 12345 to foo:22) is not supported

I need a way for the Pi itself to punch out through the firewall and
connect to another server or something, from which I can then access the
Pi as the router is totally useless.
