Gentoo rsync with SSH tunnel

Actually we can use HTTP port for updating Gentoo portage,but for much leading edge portage,I opt to tunnel it (with the risk I being warned for bandwith hogging ;->)
why? i thought emerge-webrsync has the less update portage

su -c 'ssh -fgN2L'

edit /etc/make.conf,put


najmi # nmap -p873 localhost

Starting nmap 3.81 ( ) at 2005-05-30
20:57 MYT
Interesting ports on localhost (
873/tcp open rsync

Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.131 seconds

then emerge --sync

it works for me.
