You can do TCP tunnels with ssh. Install openssh-server on your server 
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

And issue a command like this on your client (eg.: forward port 25 from 
client to port 25 ons server:

sudo ssh -l your_login_name -L 
localport:servername_or_localhost:serverport severaddress_or_hostname

sudo ssh -l thomas -L 25:localhost:25

Enter your user password for sudo
Enter your login password to login to the server
