Re: [K12OSN] webmin



Time to get really creative then..  This means breaking the rules...
Have the machine in question open an outbound ssh tunnel to a machine you
control on the outside.  You obviously have to run the listening daemon
on a port that you can get at from inside.  Then use the magic of
iptables, ssh and port forwarding to tunnel back through the firewall
to your server.  The opening of the worm hole can be controlled by cron
or in response to an inbound email from you.  If you are the only one
with an account on the outside box, and only allow connections to the
outer end of the worm hole from 'localhost', then you are still pretty
secure.

Get that? :-)

I had a working script at one point.  Start with Google and I'll check
some boxes at work tomorrow.
