I disagree.
Me explaining all the reasons I want to do this and what I 
might have planned for it would just waste everyone's time.
Maybe I want to tunnel a MySQL connection, maybe I want to
read my mail through a terminal at all times, even if the
mail server is rebooted.  Why should it matter?
I whittled the problem down to its essence so I could just
ask the one part I couldn't solve, and get back out of
everyone's way.
Carson answered it with a URL which was all I needed. 
Pop tarts on their way to Oakland for your trouble, Chuck.
