I'm interested in setting up my Debian box for remote access.
To connect to it from work, I will have to run through a firewall that only allows HTTP connections on port 8080 to pass. I do not want to set up tunnelling as this will compromise the network.
An ideal solution would be to host a page on my Apache instance, running a Java object (or something similar) that can open up a connection to a virtual tty on the box. In essence, I'd like to login to a we-based console hosted on http://myserver.net
Has anybody seen such a beast on their travels? I was thinking about a web object that can telnet to a host (in this case, localhost). I have seen this type of thing before with FTP objects running in ASP environment. I thought there might be a module like this for Webmin, but I can't find one.
A finished solution would be sweet as my coding abilities are limited.
