Someone else just gave me the solution to this problem.

All I had to do was enter this at a commandline on my computer:

 ssh frankcox at remotecomputer -L 8080:localhost:80

Now typing http://localhost:8080/ledgersmb into the Firefox on my desktop loads
the ledgersmb program on my local computer.
