You probably need :
ssh -X <homemachine>
and you might need to enable ssh X forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config,
restart sshd and login again.
Alternatively you could probably tunnel the traffic with something like:
ssh -L 10443:192.168.1.1:443 <homemachine>
and then with your locally running browser go to:
this presumes the usual address from inside your network is
https://192.168.1.1 -- modify as necessary.
An even simpler alternative would probably be to do:
ssh -L 10993:192.168.1.1:993 <homemachine>
and then point your laptops mail client at host 127.0.0.1 on port 10993.

Probably not if you want ssh running at the same time.
