Well my thought was - if you can connect to one machine - then you can
tunnel the rest of the connections through it.  But it sounds like ssh
connections on all ports will be borken.

The other alternative I was thinking was to add explicit route entrys
for the machines you ssh - into the routing table.

Not exactly the solution you were looking for. Ideally you want a vpn
