ctunnel is a software for proxying and forwarding TCP connections via a
cryptographic tunnel.
ctunnel can be used to secure any existing TCP based protocol, such as HTTP,
VNC, Telnet, FTP, RSH, MySQL, etc, as well as UDP.
You can even tunnel SSH! (if you are really paranoid!).
You can also chain/bounce connections to any number of intermediary hosts.
