Older versions of ssh can only do port forwarding, which is very useful 
but not exactly what you're looking for.

Sounds like you're looking for a VPN instead - which requires the 
participation of another host (for the other endpoint of the VPN).

Possible ways forward:
- Look into ssh-based VPNs. It's quite well documented (although I've 
  never used that bit myself)
- Look into a dedicated VPN software, e.g. openvpn

Both should set up an additional network interface - all traffic for 
that (virtual) network interface will be encrypted and routed to the 
target host and decrypted there. As far as applications are concerned, 
it's just a normal network interface.

Hope this helps
