RMI SSH Tunnel?

I've been working with Java for several years, however have just recently started reading up on EJB, RMI...etc.

Anyway, I'm needing to write a distributed application however I am greately restricted by a firewall and a few ACL's.  As of now, port 22 is open from all my hosts for SSH.

Is there anyway to pipe RMI over SSH?

Like I said, I'm new to RMI...really new.  Even if there are some documents I could read over, that would be a great help as well.

Can't you get them to reconfigure the firewall?

Yes, I could easily get them to reconfigure the firewall, but the more holes I open for this and various other projects, the more the firewall starts to look more like swiss cheese...which I'm trying to avoid.  If in the end, it has to be done, well then it has to be done, but I'm tyring to make sure I have looked at all my options before-hand.

OK - a very 'from-the-hip' suggestion: why not try to rewrite the RMI stubs so that they encrypt/decrypt the data in Base64, sending it over the wire on SSH TCP/IP?

You may also try the JAX-RPC, which is a new technology (not bug-safe), that runs over SOAP - you'll only have to open port 80 for http.
