I wish to connect to NATed application without altering the clients:
the only tool i can use is ssh (this is the only server side application
that i can use);
I can't use tun on the server (AFIAK).
for example let say that i have a dns server on a private net (
10.10.0.1) and i have the www ip (firewall) 22.214.171.124
and i wish to use this dns i understand that it should be done using tun.
next i could create a new route using tun (or anything like it) to
tun0 will has an aceptable ip or any other way it can work inside the
other private net.
so if tun0 is the tunnel :
# route add -host 10.10.0.1 dev tun0
so i would add nameserver 10.10.0.1
and could search in the dns.
next i wish to use build server (that has ssh ) 10.10.0.2
so simple route :
# route add -host 10.10.0.2 dev tun0
by this i can work without any extra settings on the servers.
