Tunnel VM Console Access Through Virtual Center

Does anyone know if this is possible?

In a normal scenario, the VI Client on your workstation accesses VirtualCenter on port 80 and 443. When you decide to click on the console tab of a VM within the VI Client it makes a connection in the background from your workstation to the ESX host that the VM is on (on port 903).

My question is this. Rather than open up the entire ESX farm on port 903 to the Admin VLANs / VPN / etc, is it possible to configure ESX/VCenter to instead make a connection that gets proxied through the VirtualCenter server?
