theYinYeti Posted December 7, 2009 Report Share Posted December 7, 2009 Hello, First the theory. I've read over and over again that â€œTCP over TCP is badâ€, and I even think I understand why. But most of those reads were about PPP over SSH, which means a TCP network through PPP over another TCP network, if I understand correctly. 1st question: As I understand it, an SSH tunnel is simply this: SSH listens on localhost:XXXX, encrypts the data, forwards it through the SSH connection to remote:22, decrypts it, and makes it all available on remote:YYYY. Even though SSH connects over TCP, and in my case the data is HTTP(S), I have the feeling that this setup is not â€œTCP over TCPâ€. Or is itÂ ? Now in practice. I have this setup: JBoss/machine A <---( local network X )--->[Firewall]<---( local network Y )---> machine B <---( internet ) Aim: view JBoss pages from Internet. Considering HTTPS is already encrypted, I suppose using SSHÂ for the tunnel is a bit overkill. Is there a more efficient solution? Yves.
