Topic "port knocking for security/firewall access"

I'd like to find a way for people at our office to access our Linux file server from home using their Windows computers.

Please implement and integrate a GUI for port knocking. PK adds a simple but effective layer of security.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_knocking

I imagine the PK GUI to be able to use/add/edit/delete a list of port knocking "sequences." Each sequence has one title, one host name, and then an arbitrarily-long, ordered list of port numbers and protocols (TCP or UDP). So, a sequence might be:

Title: The office LAN
Hostname: office.example.com
#1: UDP 12898
#2: TCP 62181
#3: TCP 9999

You could also design the UI for the sequence as a string...e.g.
udp:12898 tcp:62181 tcp:9999

Several applications have integrated port knocking clients. For example, Enhanced TightVNC has it, and it will also be in an upcoming AlmostVPN (for Mac).

any news on this?

Is it planned to be implemented, or would it be possible to implement it as a plugin/script/addon/etc?
