I want to access a virtualbox guest from Lubuntu thrue "terminal server client" (rdp on 3389) How can I route (from Lubuntu) my "terminal server client" over a ssh connection I establish before to a firewall (not on same lan)? ssh forewarding is active on the firewall.

Thanks Roberto

To open an ssh tunnel between your Lubuntu machine and the virtualbox machine, you will want to run something like

ssh -f user@firewall.fqdn -L 3389:firewall.fqdn:3389 -N

Then you point your rdp client on Lubuntu to localhost:3389. This will push all the traffic on localhost:3389 through the ssh tunnel to the virtualbox machine's port 3389.
