how can i tunnel all network with ssh connection ?

Good day,...

i have heared about tunneling specific programs with ssh (setting up firefox and gaim azureus to use ssh) but i wish more :
i need to find a way to take all my network transfer and tunnel them to a spesific ssh season:
for example i have a pc that connected to the internet (for example the IP will be
this pc uses debian Lenny with sshd started on it.

i take a client pc and do:
ssh -2 -R 7654:localhost:7654 -A -D 1080 user@
but now i need to make each program to use socks proxy server/

what i wish to do is to same how tunnel all connections to the ssh seasion.
i guess i should create a rule to iptable to send all connection attempts to that port but im not sure : to do that with iptables (rule that will forward all connections to spesific port on the client)
2.that this is the right solution

client :
Acer 5102 Wlmi running sid amd64.
Server :
Lenny i386.

This doesn't sound like a job for iptables - or ssh for that matter.

Have you considered OpenVPN?
