anonymous ssh forwarding

I would highly discourage you from doing this, especially without the 
permission of your company. Just make sure that your admin knows that you 
are doing this and make sure that your BSD box at home is properly secured. 
Keep in mind that if your system at home is compromised then your system at 
work is open to attack.

Anyhow, couldn't you just ssh into your box at home and then ssh to the 
system at work from there?  I think this would be an easier and safer 
solution than creating a tunnel.

Subject: anonymous ssh forwarding

I have the following situation. Our company has a ssh server where users can 
connect from only specified static ip addresses. Like I have at home an ip 
address and ssh server accepts connections only from it.
Now I wan't to get access to that ssh server from places where I don't have 
static ip.
I already have at home a freebsd server running with simple configutation. 
Is it possible to make some kind of tunnel or something so I could connect 
to my home freebsd machine that connects to ssh server so that ssh server 
'thinks' that I'm connecting from home?

Thank you in advance.

Sorry for bad English
