  I guess you try to use " Skeeve " is that right ?

  OK, so as the name sugests, the "bounce server" term it's used for "bouncing" data from the Client to the Server, normaly like this :
  Client -> Bounce Server -> Server and viceversa.

  You need a "bounce server" simply because the Client and the Server are in DIFFERENT networks ! So, if the IP classes do not match, or there is any incompability with the route (route down or any connection interruption) you may need to use a so called "bounce server"
  Let me be more clearly:

  You have the client with IP with internet connection through a router.
  You have a server with IP (random)
  Let's say that the router mentioned above it's and a nother interface with IP , NATDed between them, witch it's the default gateway of the Client mentioned above with the above IP.
   You can asume that the router it's " the bounce server ", because you can't have a default route from internal network (Client) IP to

  Also like the Skeeve documentation reads :

  The Client of the tunnel is trying to send a packet to the Bounce server with an address of the destination Server as a source IP. The Bounce Server can replay this packet and forward it to the destination Server. By adding some payload to the packet, we can establish a covert communication channel between two computers without direct network interaction. Skeeve Client accepts TCP connections and works as a converter of the IP header (by changing protocol flag from TCP to ICMP echo_request|reply and making some other slight modifications
