treii28 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm aware there are openSSH modules for perl and I have used many of the DBI/DBD modules. Has anyone ever implemented a layer of the DBI set that would use an ssh tunnel?
I know some of the other tools I have use something like this (dreamweaver, navicat) where they ssh to the remote before issuing commands the sql server.
I was just curious. I haven't looked deep enough into any of the DBI packages yet to see if they are actually opening their own sockets to talk to the server(s) or if they were issuing shell commands.
