AlmostVPN is an SSH tunnel manager with a twist. It is packaged as a Preference Panel, so you do not have to use yet another application to configure your tunnels. Instead, it uses creative network configuration techniques to provide almost VPN-like access to remote services, so you can keep using real IP addresses and port numbers while accessing service on the other side of your tunnels. It provides a simple way to mount remote volumes, use remote printers and faxes, access iTunes, iPhoto, and almost any other Bonjour-based application, transfer and execute files, and more.
TunnelerX is an application to let you run a single SSH tunnel from your system menu bar, typically to securely re-route HTTP (Web browsing) traffic to a remote proxy server. This is particularly useful for those stuck behind corporate firewalls or living in countries with national restrictions. Using this tool requires an SSH account on a machine outside of the firewall or restricted network and the ability to access it from within the network.
