Maybe I missed to interpret your question.
It is technically easy to utilize SSL-tunnel (over a HTTP proxy) to invite
TCP connections from outside, but what is difficult is not there but in
another, legal or ethical, layer.

| | | | (local-files)
| | RETR/STORE |
| | LIST/MSLT GET for LIST/RETR and others
| | MKD/RMD/... POST for STOR
| |See <URL:http://www.delegate.org/mail-lists/delegate-en/04810> for more
| |details about FTPxHTTP.
