Punching holes in HTTP(S) proxy's

ProxyTunnel is a program that connects stdin and stdout to a server somewhere on the network, through a standard HTTPS proxy. We mostly use it to tunnel SSH sessions through HTTP(S) proxies, allowing us to do many things that wouldn't be possible without ProxyTunnel.

Proxytunnel can create tunnels using HTTP and HTTPS proxies, can work as a back-end driver for an OpenSSH client, and create SSH connections through HTTP(S) proxies and can work as a stand-alone application, listening on a port for connections, and then tunneling these connections to a specified destination.

If you want to make effective use of ProxyTunnel, the proxy server you are going to be tunneling through must support HTTP CONNECT command and must allow you to connect to destination machine and host, with or without HTTP proxy authentication
