In trying to fix the problems I've been having with rsync, I
discovered that SSH has an option to create a secure tunnel between
the localhost and the server. (-L localport:host:hostport)
If I could somehow tell BackupPC to first set up a forwarded tunnel
and then connect to the local forwarded port instead of port 873 on
the host, I could use rsyncd (which I've verified works under win2k)
and still have a secure connection and not worry about anyone sniffing
Is this at all feasible? What would be the best way to do this? I'm
familiar with perl and I'm willing to submit a patch, but I don't know
where to begin. If anyone else has tried this please let me know.
