Something that might work (depending on what rights you have on the
shell host) is to use ppp over ssh (big warning : this is not supposed
to be recommended, but it does work rather well if your internet
connection is reasonably lossless). I think it will require root access
on both sides.
I wouldn't be surprised if what you want is possible using the linux
advanced routing features, but I don't know much about them. Try
searching the web on 'linux advanced routing'
