comment How to have ssh tunnel prompt for username & password
Actually you are correct. I managed to confuse myself. Just using bitvise's ssh client (with a c2s port forwarding) with no -g when creating the ssh tunnel works fine. If you put that in an answer I will mark it as the answer.

Ah, sorry -- the telnetting was just for testing. The real purpose for this tunnel is for the app to establish a socket connection to the 3rd party server. Please see additional details I just added in the question.

Please excuse my lack of knowledge: how would I set this up? I could setup another tunnel that forwards to the tunneling port, but then that new tunnel would need -g and then would not require authentication either...?

comment delayed email - google apps
Interesting thought. If spam processing was causing the delay, one would think (or at least hope) that having a filter with 'do not send to spam' would solve the issue? However, there was such a filter applied to the email with the delay...

comment Allowing access to joomla page for ip's in 'deny from'
This being a joomla web site, I don't know how to specify allow/deny for specific pages... all pages try to load /index.php , so obviously I can't base the allow/deny on that, as in the example for 403.shtml. How can I use the SEF URL?

The 'deny from' lines are the last thing in the .htaccess file. They are actually added with HostGator's IPDeny Manager web UI. Yes, you are right, the home page would need (images, CSS, javascript). Maybe you are right, that deny from may not be the right way to stop the spammers.

comment Allowing access to joomla page for ip's in 'deny from'
Exactly. I use 'deny from' to block IPs that submit spam forms, but they can access the home page all they want. I also just redirect to the home page for other HTTP errors. It's simple enough, just using ErrorDocument. However, using ErrorDocument to redirect to the home page for a 403 due to a 'deny from' results in a redirect loop.
