| Sounds like you want ssh tunneling. If the webapp runs on the machine

|   $ ssh -L 8080:web-app-host:80 client-host
| Then hit localhost:8080 in a browser of your choice and you get the webapp.

Also note that OpenSSH 2.x provides the "-D port" option, which 
allows the SSH client to act as a SOCKS proxy forwarding to the
remote location. This can be useful when you want to look at the
world (the Internet) from the remote system's point of view. E.g.:

    $ ssh -D 8008 client-host

then set your browser to use localhost:8008 as a SOCKS proxy.
Now when you ask for "web-app-host" both the name lookup and
the data traffic occur over the tunnelled SOCKS proxy port.
