What I have done in the past is use 'ssh -D' to create a local SOCKS
proxy to tunnel to another machine running SSHD on port 993.
There are weird latency effects involved in laying all your connections
over a single TCP connection; better would be see if one can abuse TCP
packets to a remote port 993 and treat it as UDP, and then do OpenVPN.
(Or just see if you can do UDP on that network.)
