Transparent RDP Tunneling

As part of my experimentation with OpenBSD 3.7, I’m going to try to setup a way of transparently tunneling RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol, used by Windows Remote Desktop/Terminal Services) inside SSL. I’m thinking that I can use IP aliases and Stunnel to have “ordinary” RDP encapsulated in SSL by Stunnel and then passed off to another instance of Stunnel at the other end. Then, from the RDP client, I just connect to one of the IP aliases and the rest is handled transparently.

When I get it working, I’ll post more details here as well as on the Mercurion Systems web site.
