This may be possible using the connectiong forwarding options in ssh and
the compression options. However I don't know if ssh compresses the
tunnelled connections. I would assume it does. Its very simple to tunnel
specific ports, however if you wanted a proper virtual connection to a
remote network you could use pty-redir to create a ppp link through a
ssh connection. This is covered int he VPN-HOWTO, i think.
