Port forwarding via SSH (SSH tunneling) creates a secure connection between your server and a remote machine through which any number of services can be relayed. One reason this can be useful is that you can pass traffic that uses an unencrypted protocol (IMAP, VNC for example) over an encrypted network stream to increase security.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
