its not often that I'm at a web terminal where I cant use a thumb drive to
access my own network but the trick is I would have to be carrying this
physical hardware on me OR configure the persons web browser both are things
that I'm trying to avoid.

Its generally a best case scenario of my worst case scenario.  A reverse
proxy sounds like it might be a good way to go as long as I can find a way
to authenticate before being able to use it.

I do definitely appreciate the advice for ssh tunneling though it will be
good for archival purposes.  Im not really looking for full vpn solutions as
I can already basically ssh in if I need something higher function but this
is more for just mild maintenance and trivial work. Basically I still want
the functionality of the web apps from the WWW side of things just less
insecure.
