If all you're after is encrypted traffic, forward the traffic over a
stunnel connection. The examples included with it are all you need.


P.S. Tunneling over SSH doesn't work that well, since you need an actual
account on both ends for it, and it doesn't automatically reconnect when
the connection is disrupted.
