Goal: from WAN, SSH-tunnel to home router (outfitted with SSH) and access remote LAN devices with iPad's web browser.
As I understand it, a SSH-tunnel (connection) must be established first, which I imagine would require an App? The Ubuntu equivalent being:
ssh -f -N email@example.com -L 8080: server1.example.com:3000
Unless the app routes all web browser (port 80?) traffic through its tunnel, then there would need to be a setting in the browser that enable a tunnel proxy?
What are today's options? Solution preference is for simplicity & low-cost. Simplicity comprises avoiding jail-break.
