You don't need to rewrite the app (unless you want to do it as a 
learning exercise). sshd can tunnel connections this way right out of 
the box, or if you want to do it the exact way you're doing now, you 
can, e.g. configure xinetd to forwar one port to your server to another 
port to another server (but that's extremely dangerous)
