Projects / Webtunnel


Webtunnel is a network utility that encapsulates arbitrary data in HTTP and transmits it through a Web server. In that regard, it is similar to httptunnel. However, its server component runs in the context of a Web server as a CGI application (with optional FastCGI support), so it does not need its own port. It supports most things that the Web server supports, such as authentication, HTTP 1.1, HTTPS, and client certificates. It uses simple requests and responses so it works seamlessly through forward and reverse proxies.
