Works perfectly

I found this utility to work perfectly. I am stuck using it under Cygwin on windows, which it compiles easily on (By easy, I mean it compiles out of box.. no modifications or hacks, just run configure). I use OpenSSH at CLI and when I create an SSH forward, from there I go ahead and launch several local port forwards. This allows me to tunnel my HTTP, Socks, and other traffic over ssh, over corkscrew, via a web proxy. Due to the commonly found restrictions on properly configured web proxies, I did have to setup a remote sshd running on port 443 to get all of this to work. I've had great success using this though MSPROXY as well as Squid. I would be one bored monkey at work without this program. It's also worth noting that I can keep sustained connections for many hours with it and pass gigs of traffic through it without error.
