Here is a video highlighting the power of using an SSH server to create a reverse tunnel to connect back into a host after leaving the computer.

This method will allow you to create an SSH tunnel to a machine somewhere on the Internet and allow you to remote desktop to that SSH host and then remote into the desktop session you have left connected to it.

To do this in Linux if you wanted to VNC to the machine, simply follow the commands below. if you need a video for this, just let me know.

"ssh user@ssh_machine -R 5902:" (Without Quotes)

or you could even create the reverse tunnel to a computer located somewhere on your network.

"ssh user@ssh_machine -R 5902:machine_IP:5900 -R 3390:machine_IP:3389" (Without Quotes)

With all of these methods, you would still remote onto the SSh machine for the tunnel to work.
