I thought I would have to give more detail. Basically, there are three
machines. One of these machines will be the "server". The other two
machines (all machines are on a private network) will be clients. I wanted
all services to have a single wrapper. This wrapper would enforce things
like only allowing those two clients access to the services on the server.

So, its not a matter for people "outside" to be able to tunnel
 through to machines on the private network - its a matter of enforcing
those clients on the inside to use a single interface.

It's not just telnet and X unfortunately.
