VPN with SSH Port forwarding
Tuesday, 20 May 2003

Lightning announces a powerful new VPN option for all MultiCom Firewalls using the upcomming firmware 3.5: SSH Port Forwarding.

SSH Port Forwarding allows you to forward TCP connections such as POP3 mail, HTTP, telnet, VNC, Microsoft Remote Desktop and others over an encrypted SSH connection. This avoids the network traffic being sent in cleartext. For example, your home computer can be securely connected to the mail server at the office.
