I don't think so. I think OpenSSH should provide a simple feature like this
one. A simple crypted proxy.

ssh binds to localhost 31337 and when you connect to that port, it starts a
connection to your server sshd. That's it. So you could do this

$ telnet localhost 31337

instead of

$ ssh server

Thanks, faucet did the trick. Howvere I'm using in on the client side, not on
the server.
