Subject Re: [users@httpd] Can apache and ssh share port 80?

well if they have a firewall that inspects traffic, tunneling ssh through port 443 wont be
met with much joy...

  I'm not suggesting that anyone should screw with the military's local firewall.  .Mil networks
generally allow 80/tcp and 443/tcp outbound connections, and so making a remote SSH server
listen on 443 is just a way to connect to it while still passing local firewall rules.  As
far as the local network is concerned, you're making https connections, and https is certainly
allowed.

    Either get them to grant you what you NEED (and no more than
    that--unless you really want to be in deep kimche), or get a different
    job.

    In any case, have you thought about using WebDAV over https? Apache 
    supports this just fine--and you can even set it up to edit scripts and
    includes if you pay attention.  Once you have WebDAV over https running
    you can use damn near whatever you want wherever you want to edit the 
    content.
