Why don't you do it the "other" way?
<a> <-> <b> <-> <xp>
If I understand well, you are located at <a> and you want to connect to
<xp> thanks and sshd at <b> ?
Assuming you have control on <a> and <xp> can access <a>
=> install sshd on <a> ( and allow port forwarding )
make the <xp> box connect (via ssh) to <a> and make it forward its local
port 3389 to whatever you want on <a>
Use private key to avoid keyboard authentication ( so that you can
automate the connection )
Looks much easier!
