Sorry, I didn't read your message properly, but it does offer quite a
good solution.

If I understand it correctly, I would create a reverse ssh tunnel from
each of the remote machines and connect their http ports (80) via the
ssh tunnel to different ports on a central server.  Then I could then
access the remote webservers on the various reverse ports on the central

Obviously I would need a cron script on each of the remote machines to
manage the connection and to ensure it stays up.

This sounds like a good solutions.  Why should I avoid it?
