I'm a little confused here - knowing what line of businesses you're in (
You're an ISP in Mayo aren't you ), these are probably both your own
machines on your network. You're reluctant to configure an opening on
the firewall, but you're ok with creating a reverse-tunnel to circumvent
your own security, with the same effect? I would be concerned here about
creating the illusion of security, unless you're trying to get something
past a pointy-haired manager.
