Apache enabling tunneling SSH over HTTPS

After 5 years Apache finally committed a patch, to allow CONNECT over SSL, to trunk. This is very good news for proxytunnel users, but everyone in general. Finally progress on this topic ! Here's hoping this will end up in RHEL6 before the freeze...

Tunneling NFS4 over SSH

Today we had the need to mount a filesystem from a system that was almost completely isolated and instead of having to transfer a huge amount of data over a tunneled SSH connection, I thought, why not pursue mounting NFS over an SSH tunnel.

Since NFS4 by default does TCP if both client and server can do that, this would be the perfect opportunity to test the new capability. In fact, it should not be hard at all.
