Is there any way to SSL the data connection to the server from a client? I know there is encryption but looking for a secure tunneling method. Also does anyone know what the encryption type is ?

Encryption is Blowfish - see manual

It runs fine over VPN and likely even SSH though not sure if anybody has
tried that one.

Sorry, I missed this when you posted it.

Elevate Web Builder's web server is getting new crypto features (built-in Wincrypt in Windows) in version 3 (coming soon), and ElevateDB will be getting a similar treatment after that point.  Specifically, Blowfish/MD5 will be going away in favor of AES/SHA-256 (or higher).  Basically there will be an engine-level setting in ElevateDB that controls the type of encryption/hashes that are used.

Graham,

Oops, I didn't address the SSL question: I've implemented SSL/TLS in EWB 3's web server, and will be looking to back-port it for use with ElevateDB and DBISAM after EWB 3 is out.  It certainly would be nice to be able to use an industry-standard protocol for comms encryption that doesn't require pre-determined passwords.
