Subject Re: [users@httpd] Can apache and ssh share port 80?
Date Sat, 01 Apr 2006 10:33:35 GMT

Bob,

The real question you should be asking is why you would even contemplate 
tunnelling through the paranoid firewall of a military base?

How about buying a dial up link and use their phone, or get them to provide a 
stand alone internet connected workstation, then show them the site and make 
modifications through that? If they want you to make real time modifications 
while you are there they need to provide you with the resources.

Regards,
Jon
