  What is tunneling? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: tunnel, port forwarding
Tunneling is generally done by encapsulating the private network data and protocol information within the public network transmission units so that the private network protocol information appears to the public network as data.
Tunneling allows the use of the Internet, which is a public network, to convey data on behalf of a private network.
Tunneling, and the use of a VPN, is not intended as a substitute for encryption/decryption.

Formed in 1846 as the amalgamation of three communities nestled along the banks of the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan, the City of Milwaukee today is home to more than 570,000 people and the cultural and commercial center of Wisconsin.
Over the years, the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) has quietly built a network of tunnels that have helped to reduce the number of sewer overflows and accommodate growth within the Greater Milwaukee area.
The Past August issue of Tunnel Business Magazine published an excellent roundtable discussion on legal issues lead by Gary Brierley, with four lawyers participating — all well-known and respected in the underground construction industry — Bob Smith, Bob Fitzgerald, Randy Hafer and Dave Corkum.

  Implementing Tunneling for IPv6
The tunnels are not tied to a specific passenger or transport protocol, but in this case carry IPv6 as the passenger protocol with the GRE as the carrier protocol and IPv4 or IPv6 as the transport protocol.
An automatic 6to4 tunnel may be configured on a border router in an isolated IPv6 network, which creates a tunnel on a per-packet basis to a border router in another IPv6 network over an IPv4 infrastructure.
The reason that a 6to4 tunnel and an IPv4-compatible tunnel cannot share an interface is that both of them are NBMA "point-to-multipoint" access links and only the tunnel source can be used to reorder the packets from a multiplexed packet stream into a single packet stream for an incoming interface.

 Tunneling
Qualitatively the tunnel effect does not depend on the shape of the potential barrier, as illustrated in the next animation for the case of a triangular barrier.
It is a direct consequence of the fact that the tunnel probability is a function of the energy.
The properties of the transmitted wave packet strongly depends on the properties of the tunnel barrier and, to less extent, on the width of the slit whereas the length of the slit has little effect.

 SSH: Tunneling
Tunneling, or port forwarding, is a way to forward otherwise insecure TCP traffic through an encrypted Secure Shell tunnel.
Outgoing tunnels protect TCP connections that your local computer forwards from a specified local port to the specified port on the remote host computer you are connected to.
An Edit Tunnel dialog appears, allowing you to edit the name, listen port, destination host, and destination port of the outgoing tunnel.

 ATOMIC SCALE TUNNELING AND IMAGING
The simplest explanation of the scanning tunneling microscope as a very sensitive profilometer depends on the belief that at the atomic scale the STM is actually taking a surface profile of the sample.
Assuming a simple model for the probe, and using the first order perturbation theory for determining the tunneling current, leads to the conclusion that the tunneling current is proportional to the local density of states.
Assuming the tunneling probe was spherical in shape with a radius R, Binnig determined the tunneling current would be related to the probe radius by equation 16.

Furthermore we will provide several examples, how tunneling can be implemented transparently for the users of a system, explain the necessary changes in the configuration of the server- and the client-side of the service, and discuss the problems that arise when tunneling is used through a firewall.
All communication requests are forwarded through the encrypted tunnel to the tunnel server, which in turn decrypts the incoming data and forwards it to the mail server at port 110.
Due to the tunnel, all data transmissions between the client machine and the tunnel server are encrypted and have been authenticated properly.

 O'Reilly Network -- Using SSH Tunneling
A tunnel is a networking term with an appropriate name.
An SSH tunnel works like this: Rather than connecting to the mail server directly, we establish an SSH connection to the internal network that the mail server lives in (frequently, the mail server itself).
With the tunnel in place, anyone who tries to monitor the conversation between your laptop and the mail server will get something resembling line noise.

In tunnel mode, AH or ESP (and sometimes both) secures the entire packet, and treats the result as the payload of a new packet.

 CITES : VPN : Split Tunneling
A tunnel is split when some network traffic is sent to the VPN server and other traffic is sent directly to the remote location without passing through the VPN server.
Split tunneling will be used when you connect with the standard off-campus/wired VPN profile (which is distributed alongside the VPN client software).
Disabling split tunneling for access to off-campus Library resources: If a computer is accessing a service that is outside UIUC IP address space but needs to be accessed from a UIUC IP address, the split tunneling profile will not serve your purposes.

Observe how the tunneling probability of the chosen particle varies with energy for the chosen potential barrier.
From the probability density graph at each value of energy the program determines the tunneling probability, and then generates a graph of these tunneling probabilities vs. the energy.
The process takes a several moments, and the Tunneling Probability vs. Energy (T vs. E) graph is jagged because it is created from only six data points.

 Scanning Tunneling Microscope   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The scanning tunneling microscope (STM) is widely used in both industrial and fundamental research to obtain atomic-scale images of metal surfaces.
Russell D. Young, of the National Bureau of Standards, was the first person to combine the detection of this tunneling current with a scanning device in order to obtain information about the nature of metal surfaces.
The instrument which he developed between 1965 and 1971, the Topografiner, altered the separation between the tip and the surface (z) so that, at constant voltage, the tunneling current (or, at constant current, the tunneling voltage) remained constant as the tip was scanned over the surface.

Extensibility The tunneling handshake is freely extensible using the HTTP/1.x headers; as an example, to enforce authentication for the proxy the proxy will simply use the 407 status code and the Proxy-authenticate response header (as defined by the HTTP/1.x specification) to ask the client to send authentication information: HTTP/1.0 407 Proxy authentication required Proxy-authenticate:...
Security Considerations The CONNECT tunneling mechanism is really a lower-level function than the rest of the HTTP methods, kind of an escape mechanism for saying that the proxy should not interfere with the transaction, but merely forward the data.
In the case of SSL tunneling, this is because the proxy should not need to know the entire URI that is being accessed (privacy, security), only the information that it explicitly needs (hostname and port number) in order to carry out its part.

 SSH Tunneling | Linux Magazine
Thus, you may be able to use SSH tunneling even if you don't administer the ultimate target system, so long as it runs SSH in addition to the protocol you want to tunnel.
This is done by launching SSH with appropriate parameters to have it connect to a remote server and listen to local connections on an appropriate port.
A special case of SSH tunneling is the protocol's capacity to tunnel X connections.

 Spin-Polarized Scanning Tunneling Microscopy
The simplest model for spin-dependent tunneling suggests that the spin-polarization of electrons extracted from the material is determined by the total density of states and thus can be both positive and negative.
Substantially polarized tunneling electrons are necessary to produce easily detectable variation (on the order of 10 %) of the tunneling current caused by the orientation of the sample magnetization.
Such splitting lowers the tunnel barrier energy for spin-up and raises it for spin-down electrons, leading to the preferential selection of spin-up electrons in the tunneling current.
