Then using ssh -W as I originally suggested is easy and will do it.

Thank you for your answer

-W will not do because all the traffic has to go through the server even if its transparent from the point of view of the client A. Also it will hit the firewall when trying to reach B from the server.

Right now A and B connect to vpn in server and so I can connect from A to B via vpn, But i wanted to avoid having to send packets that far since I plan to be using the connection heavily.
