Hi Russell,

Newer (and perhaps older) versions support SSL although there seems to 
be some questions as to how well.

In either event there are some nice examples of both SSL and stunnel here:

The only really sensitive info is actually the password but that's enough to make it worth doing.   I know I can do this with 'ssh db-box -L 13306:localhost:3306' (if I got that right) but it isnt ideal so how do others do this?
