Thanks. I meant the application level port-forwarding but tunneling the Erlang transport is also interesting.

Are you talking about running distributed Erlang transport over SSH tunnels or creating tunnels via the Erlang's SSH client/server applications?

It would certainly be nice if distributed transport supported such an option, albeit it's not a trivial change, that would involve similar effort to supporting multiple transports (https://github.com/erlang/otp/pull/121).

If it's just for application-level port forwarding, then I would think leveraging the SSH server's port forwarding facility with the Erlang client-side tunneling, you can look at ssh_connection:direct_tcpip/6, which does exactly that.

Can we establish SSH tunnels with pure Erlang code? I would be interested in setting up local and dynamic port forwarding.
