I agree that a VPN would help certainly fix the problem, but again - I have a design requirement that states that there can be no external dependencies. The solution must live completely within the Perl code.

Another restriction is that I am trying to avoid any bootstrapping of the remote system, and using a VPN would defeat this requirement as well.

    OpenSSH has native support for creating VPNs (no external programs required). Though it must be enabled on the configuration and requires root access.
