Just a suggestion. Have you considered generating HTML index pages and using thttpd and dillo? You could use ssh to create a tunnel for a local socket, to give it the same type of security layer. That way you don't have to have an additional port open to the public. I have done this exact thing for remote data with plots. Maybe it could work for you.
