        Not when the system's in single user mode :)

        You are assuming I want to run RDP (Microsoft's Remote
        Desktop - port 3389) thru ssh. Yes, this does work fine.

        I need console (serial) access to UNIX boxes, switches,
        routers, etc but of course, via ssh. I need a magic ssh box
        that does the terminal server thing.
