SSH Tunnel

When you don’t have an SSL-VPN or IPSec VPN already set up, SSH tunnels will do the job -- and they just plain work. SSH Tunnel absolutely requires root access, but allows you to tunnel just about any app through the SSH tunnel to your destination, e.g. a Linux machine at work. You could point your app at port 12000 and pop out from the Linux box to hit your IIS-based WebDAV server at on port 80, for example. If this sounded Greek to you, just search “how to ssh tunnels” on Google. It’s a bit convoluted, but it's worth learning.
