Access MSSQL remotely through SSH

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have a MSSQL server on my internal network (port 1433), but no ports are accessible externally.  I have a linux server also on my internal network, whose SSH port 22 IS accessible externally.

How can I efficiently query my SQL server from an external Windows machine?  I am okay with any tunneling/forwarding options (as long as I can still SSH to my linux box on port 22).
