Homecalling like service for remotly managing routers

Hi Iam trying to find a solution to monitor and configure cisco ios routers which are deployed inside branches (behind different firewalls) with intransparent WAN access. So there could be variable Firewall Configs between the Internet and the Router.

Because the Branch Router i want to deploy is an Internet Client and there is no possibilty to configure IPSEC on the upstream device there is neither a way to Forward ESP or AH nor to allow Passthrough or Port Forward SSH or Dial via ISDN.

So here is a little Schema:

[Management Site Router(mgmt)] --- [INTERNET CLOUD] --- [CPE ROUTER/FIRWALLS]---[ROUTER_IWANT_TO_MANAGE(clnt)]

Is there any VPN over SSL i can initate from Router (clnt) to Mangement Site Router (mgmt) and use this channel to ssh to (clnt)?

Something like:

                                                                                                                                                   <-- SSL 443 to mgmt

SSH to clnt via SSL 443 tunnel --->

[Management Site Router(mgmt)] --- [INTERNET CLOUD] --- [CPE ROUTER/FIRWALLS]---[ROUTER_IWANT_TO_MANAGE(clnt)]
