this is in deed what I would like to do.
However, I would like to have a remote shell running on my home 
computer, so I can work on the raspberry.
As the rasperry does not have a valid ip (it is behind NAT) I look for a 
way that the raspy initiates the connection.
But the shell should run localy.

thanks again
