I currently use scripts like this to use rdesktop from
home to my office:
ssh -C -L 3389:workbox:3389 work sleep 5 &
rdesktop -g 1280x1024 -a 16 localhost
This works, but is a PITA because I need to essentially
create one of these scripts per host I want to connect to.
It would be nice if rdesktop had a "--via" switch which
automates the ssh tunnel setup.
A similar option is supported by xtightvncviewer. Very
