Hi all;   I'm running -current, have started to read up on setting up  
ssh tunnelling.  I have some basic questions about goals and workflow  
(like, does this make sense to try and implement for my goals :)

I wish to set up a webadmin for my PVR (I'm running GB-PVR on a  
Windows box).  I don't really want to open up more holes and point  
them directly to the XP machine, let alone trust the webadmin for the  
PVR to be robust.

I currently use my NetBSD install mostly for sftp, so was looking  
into tunneling through that sshd and routing the appropriate traffic  
to the XP machine on the internal LAN.

This should be possible, but:

-how straightforward is it :)
-will the build for -cobalt support the features needed to make this  
work?  IIRC we are still a little limited for some filtering/ packet  
level features.

Thanks for pointers- success/ failure stories.  I don't mind reading  
and learning but I have a limited amount of time for neat projects  
like this, so don't want to start getting into it if it likely will  
not work well on my particular setup.
