Can't all users just access the same URL on the Apache server? Why
have you set up separate Apache port numbers for each user? Why are
users ssh'ing in to the server and then using the Apache URL, instead
of using the Apache URL directly from their own computers? If
encryption is the concern, wouldn't using https be the more natural
fit than trying to tunnel over ssh? I have no experience with ssh
tunneling, but it sounds like it introduces unnecessary complexity.
