    What you're describing here is a Virtual Private Network (VPN), using
    ssh as the underlying transport mechanism. I've never done it before,
    but apparently it's possible to use PPP over ssh to set up a VPN.

    Google gave me many good hits for "vpn over ssh" (the first of which,
    <>, talks about the PPP setup
    I mentioned above).
