Automatic SSH Tunnels

I subscribe to the Anonymizer SSH tunneling service. It comes with a nice Windows app that logs you into their SSH server and sets up a tunnel whenver you try to access the internet. It sits in the system tray and loads with Windows, so it's really configure-and-forget. Unless you run Linux

Is there an easy way to setup an SSH tunnel during boot or automatically when needed? I've tried telling SSH to fork into the background (with a command line switch) but it closes the session after issuing a command. I can't cntrl+Z either because that just sends a cntrl+Z. I also can't figure out how to automate it with a service script because it requires typing a password (no authorized_key stuff becuase I don't get a terminal) and I can't get bash scripts to do that.

I'm running 2.6.0-0.test9.1.87 on Fedora Core 1.

hmmm, maybe you should try using keys as authentification instead of password, I don't know if Anonymzer allows that though.
