It sounds like the original poster has ssh access, so using an ssh tunnel
may work well.  I do this sometimes if I want to schedule something while I
am at work.  I usually do the following:

ssh -L 8080:localhost:80 my.mythtv.server.public.address

And then on the local box point the web browser at

(In reality I don't have direct access to my mythtv backend server via ssh,
but to another server box, in that case the command changes to ssh -L
8080:internal.ip.of.mythbackend:80 my.mythtv.server.public.address)

Plumbing like this using ssh tunnels allows you to be able to do some
pretty nice things on your internal network when you are away, with only an
ssh port open.
