Projects / HTTPTunnel


HTTPTunnel is a simple client/server application for creating an HTTP tunnel between two machines, optionally via a Web proxy. This tunnel can then be used to wrap arbitrary TCP socket traffic in HTTP, thus allowing communications even through a restrictive firewall that only allows outgoing HTTP connections.
