  Obviously this would do the trick, but see below as to why it is not
a good option.

  There is no way of ssh tunneling remote x sessions, when my remote
terminal is a dummy tektronic x terminal. When in switched internal
network (that is, there is a firewall between the switch and the
internet), the need to tunnel is minimal - unless my switch and
firewall are compromised - if not non-existent.
