What all these services are doing is basically creating a reverse tunnel, that is, any connection to a specific port on the a remote computer is forwarded back to your computer.

If you have ssh access to a remote computer/server/vps/etc. you could try just creating a reverse tunnel without having to install any additional software. A pretty good how to is available on this Stack Overflow answer. Basically you want to do the ssh -R command.

btw, if you run this, and use -f flag, it will send ssh to the background and you will need to kill -9 it 😉 when you are done.
