Ok ,
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 ( and i have the www ip (firewall)
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  dev tun0
so i would add nameserver

and could search in the dns.

next i wish to use  build server (that has ssh )
so simple route :
# route add -host  dev tun0

etc ...

by this i can work without any extra settings on the servers.
