Yes, that does seem to be an issue here.  The IP address reported by my
3-G router is quite different from that reported by the remote systems I
connect to - *and* I seem quite unable to get connections from outside
back into the eeePc.

I think I may have to do what I did at work for a while and set up a
reverse tunnel through an ssh connection set up from the eeePc end. 
That'll will require some searching of my memory on how to do it!
