      Description

      Hello,

      One of the reasons I migrated from gRPC to Thrift was because of the fundamental distinction between RPC Client/Server and Transport Client/Server. This has allowed me to create RPC processors that actually connect to a server(broker), in a similar way to a reverse proxy. This is immensely useful for restricted networks.

      As said, due to the elegant separation between processor and transport this turned out to be trivial and I would like to share my implementation of such a transport "decorator" so that we can have Client transports work in Processor servers.

      I do not have tests yet, besides my own working private implementations but will try soon to prepare such for at least the Socket examples.

      I also do not know very well how the naming should be so i just made it TReverseTunnelServer.
