Zabbix remote monitoring

Introduction

When we have a Zabbix server monitoring on-premises servers, we can use both active and passive zabbix-agents, connecting to the Zabbix server over the local network. However, for remote servers with only public IP addresses, we would need to open up the ports for Zabbix on either the Zabbix server (10051/tcp for active checks) or the monitored host (10050/tcp for passive checks). This isn't ideal of course, so it would be better to tunnel these connections over SSH.
