If you can connect with ssh then port-forwarding is probably your best 
bet.  Just forward lots of ports across and you can do whatever you want.

Another trick when using programs that don't like non-standard ports - 
have them listen on or another loopback IP (the loopback 
network is a class A network).  Many (most?) ssh clients will forward 
ports from one of these IPs - so you can use ports that would otherwise 
be in use by your own OS (like SMB/etc).
