Hi John,

Attached is a simple socket relay program, pulled from Visit source code.
Not sure if this will be useful to you, but it gives you a simple program
like so-

   Usage ./socket_relay <target host> <target port> <listen port>

You could run this on a service node.  It works with ssh reverse tunnels
when gateway ports are disabled.  Use at your own risk :)
