Use Apple Remote Desktop with Macs behind firewalls

No, because ARD is based on TCP and UDP-connections. ssh can only tunnel TCP as stated above, so you only will get the "VNC-part" of ARD. If you want a full working ARD, you should try VPN (either with roadwarriors or net2net). Any Linux based firewall with FreeSwan/OpenSwan or OpenVPN will be fine for that. Another possiblity is to tunnel UDP over TCP, some solutions for unix are around. I tried to build udptunnel (http://www1.cs.columbia.edu/~lennox/udptunnel/) and it seems to start. Not tested though because I use VPNs for that.
