    HTTP Tunnel in Linux?


    Hi:

    I'm changing my OS from Windows to Linux and I have this problem. I connect to the Internet through a restrictive proxy at work which only open port is the 80. While I was using Windows I used an application from http://www.http-tunnel.com named http-tunnelclient.exe which gives the chance to the user of using programs like Gaim and Emule that need other ports than 80 to be opened. I searched the net looking for a similar program for Linux but I didn't find anything that meet my needs. Can anybody here help me?

    Thanks

    What I do is use ssh to my home, and forward any traffic I dont want the company to see over the ssh connection to my computer at home and out to the internet from there. Port forwarding through ssh is pretty easy to do, the only drawback with this is that you need a computer running at home all the time that you can ssh into.

    I can't do that

    Thanks but I can't use your solution because I don't have a computer at home.
