This can be problematic if you forward TCP connections over PPP.
If a packet is lost, both the TCP stack for the ssh connection and
the upper-level TCP stack may decide to retransmit at the same time.
This will lead to congestion.

A better solution is CIPE by Olaf Titz, which uses UDP for
individual IP packets. See
