Wind, fire, all that kind of thing!
Sometimes administrators need to access the computer of a remote user, but depending on the location (e.g. hotels or foreign company networks) NAT or firewalls may get in the way. One method of getting around this problem is to establish an outbound SSH tunnel on the remote user's computer, and then connect back to the computer through that tunnel. However, setting up an SSH tunnel isn't something Joe Average usually is too comfortable with. That's why I wrote wormhole, a little application (actually a shell script encapsulated in an application bundle via Platypus) to make establishing a tunnel as simple as possible for remote Macintosh users.
