Just to clarify, Tom suggested investigating VShell.  It looks like it 
would work, but I have not used it.  There are a number of other 
packages to encrypt communications between computers that will work as 
long as they have the ability to tunnel tcp/ip connections made on a 
specific port from one computer to another.  openssh and PuTTY (& the 
openssh server) are two such packages.

The tunnel needs to be set up to listen on the remote computer on the 
"server port" defined in the debugging -> remote preferences.  The 
tunnel is set up using the -R option when using ssh or by adding a 
remote port to forward on the SSH tunnels section of the PuTTY 
configuration.  It can be tricky to set up the location map when using 
tunnels because the remote IP address used as a key in the map will 
always be, which may or may not be a problem depending on how 
your source tree is set up.
