We have a unix server (that due to internal politics, I cannot install SSH
on) that I would like to publish over the internet for some of our users.
I can, however, install SSH on a Windows 2000 box (our current firewall).
So my question is: What is the best way to port forward an incoming
encrypted port to an unencrypted telnet session?
Do I have to install a Linux server and auto logon to a telnet session for
each encrypted connection that comes in? (or can I do this with Cygwin - I'
ve not been able to get it to auto run a telnet session).

Re: Create a secure telnet connection via a Windows 2000 server
The easy way is "find a job with a clue". The second way, which may serve
your needs better, is to install stunnel on that box and run VNC on it over
an SSL-tunneled port. This provides an X-based session on the box for normal
logins, and can be configured to allow an arbitrary number of people to
share the session quite easily. If you need to have multiple logins on the
box at the same time, that's another story.
Why do you need telnet-style sessions on the Windows box?
